Famous quotes containing the word dickens:

    A man in public life expects to be sneered at—it is the fault of his elevated sitiwation, and not of himself.
    —Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    —Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    Minerva House ... was “a finishing establishment for young ladies,” where some twenty girls of the ages from thirteen to nineteen inclusive, acquired a smattering of everything and a knowledge of nothing.
    —Charles Dickens (1812–1870)
