Quotables: Charles Dickens

On the danger of going through life with a chip on your shoulder: 


"...Thus it will always happen that these men of the world, who go through it in armour, defend themselves from quite as much good as evil; to say nothing of the inconvenience and absurdity of mounting guard with a microscope at all times, and of wearing a coat of mail on the most innocent occasions."
- Charles Dickens, The Old Curiosity Shop
