William Makepeace Thackeray
Them's my sentiments.
Thackeray quotes
Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.
Thackeray
Although I enter not,
Yet round about the spot
Ofttimes I hover;
And near the sacred gate
With longing eyes I wait,
Expectant of her.




Despair is perfectly compatible with a good dinner, I promise you.
Thackeray William Makepeace
Except for the young or very happy, I can't say I am sorry for any one who dies.
Remember, it's as easy to marry a rich woman as a poor woman.
William Makepeace Thackeray
This Bouillabaisse a noble dish is
A sort of soup or broth, or brew,
Or hotchpotch of all sorts of fishes,
That Greenwich never could outdo.
It is best to love wisely, no doubt; but to love foolishly is better than not to be able to love at all. Some of us can't: and are proud of our impotence, too.
