Famous quotes containing the word dickens:

    I believe no satirist could breathe this air. If another Juvenal or Swift could rise up among us tomorrow, he would be hunted down. If you have any knowledge of our literature, and can give me the name of any man, American born and bred, who has anatomised our follies as a people, and not as this or that party; and who has escaped the foulest and most brutal slander, the most inveterate hatred and intolerant pursuit; it will be a strange name in my ears, believe me.
    —Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    It opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes, and softens down the temper; so cry away.
    —Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    —Charles Dickens (1812–1870)
