Ten Dickens Doodles

b2ap3_thumbnail_j0432719Prolific doesn’t even begin to describe the volume of the writings of Charles Dickens.  But, volume is one thing and veracity is another.  It is veracity (defined as, the quality of being true or accurate) that has kept Dickens works alive over a century after creation.  Here’s a sampling of why that is the case.


  • A day wasted on others is not wasted on oneself.


  • A loving heart is the truest wisdom.


  • No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it to anyone else.


  • If there were no bad people, there would be no good lawyers.


  • Life is made of ever so many partings welded together.


  • It is a melancholy truth that even great men have their poor relations.


  • Credit is a system whereby a person who cannot pay gets another person who cannot pay to guarantee that he can pay.


  • It opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes, and softens down the temper; so cry away.


  • There is nothing so strong or safe in an emergency of life as the simple truth.


  • Vices are sometimes only virtues carried to excess.


The word, doodle, can suggest something occurring absentmindedly.  I’m sure you would agree there is nothing absentminded about the above thoughts from Charles Dickens.  Move can be found at:  http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/c/charles_dickens.html
