William Makepeace Thackeray II

Life is a mirror: if you frown at it, it frowns back; if you smile, it returns the greeting.

To love and win is the best thing.
To love and lose, the next best.

Good humor may be said to be one of the very best articles of dress one can wear in society.

Revenge may be wicked, but it’s natural.

Never lose a chance of saying a kind word.

Which of us is happy in this world? Which of us has his desire? or, having it, is satisfied?

If a man's character is to be abused, say what you will, there's nobody like a relative to do the business.

People hate as they love, unreasonably.

There are a thousand thoughts lying within a man that he does not know till he takes up the pen to write.
