Well my friends, were he still alive and writing, legendary British writer Charles Dickens would turn 203 on February 7.

In honour of my favourite author, — hey, I love Dickens so much I named my mini schnauzer after him! — I thought it’d be fun to share ten of my favourite Charles Dickens quotes:

  • “A loving heart is the truest wisdom.” (from David Copperfield)
  • “The most important thing in life is to stop saying ‘I wish’, and start saying ‘I will’. Consider nothing impossible, then treat possibilities as probabilities.” (from David Copperfield)
  • “Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many – not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”
  • “Take nothing on its looks: Take everything on evidence. There’s no better rule.” (from Great Expectations)
  • “Happiness is a gift, and the trick is not to expect it, but to delight in it when it comes.” (from Nicholas Nickleby)
  • “Every heart is a profound mystery to the heart beating nearest it.”
  • “It is good to be children, and sometimes never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.” (from A Christmas Carol)
  • “We forge the chains we wear in life.” (from A Christmas Carol)
  • “Do all the good you can, and make as little fuss about it as possible.”
  • “I never could have done what I have done without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time.”
