"I have always thought of Christmastime, when it has come round...as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys."
"God bless us, every one!"
"Have a Heart that never hardens, and a Temper that never tires, and a Touch that never Hurts."
"Never close your lips to those whom you have already opened your Heart."
"There was a long har time when I kept far from me the remembrance of what I had thrown away when I was quite ignorant of its worth."
