A day wasted on others is not wasted on one’s self.
A man is lucky if he is the first love of a woman. A woman is lucky if she is the last love of a man.
Ask no questions, and you’ll be told no lies.
Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.
I have been bent and broken, but, I hope, into a better shape.
I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free.
If there were no bad people, there would be no good lawyers.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
Never close your lips to those whom you have already opened your heart.
No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it to anyone else.
Once a gentleman, always a gentleman.
Procrastination is the thief of time.
There is a wisdom of the head, and… there is a wisdom of the heart.
There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.
There is prodigious strength in sorrow and despair.
Vices are sometimes only virtues carried to excess!
We forge the chains we wear in life.
What greater gift than the love of a cat.
/ Charles Dickens
