Quotation: Charles Dickens


We are not rich in the bank, but we have always prospered, and we have quite enough. I never walk out with my husband but I hear the people bless him … I never lie down at night but I know that in the course of that day he has alleviated pain and soothed some fellow-creature in the time of need … Is not this to be rich?
