Famous quotes containing the word thackeray:

    There is no good ... in living in a society where you are merely the equal of everybody else.... The true pleasure of life is to live with your inferiors.
    —William Makepeace Thackeray (1811–1863)

    Certain it is that scandal is good brisk talk, whereas praise of one’s neighbour is by no means lively hearing.

    —William Makepeace Thackeray (1811–1863)

    What money is better bestowed than that of a schoolboy’s tip? How the kindness is recalled by the recipient in after days! It blesses him that gives and him that takes.
