In honor of Charles Dickens 200th Birthday, I give you a few favorite quotes:
"The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this: that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists."
"Whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do it well; whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself completely; in great aims and in small I have always thoroughly been in earnest."
"A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other." Happy Birthday, Dickens.
