QUOTE (Charles Dickens) – Feb 7

February 7, 2014

Charles Dickens (1812-1870)

“Remember!–It is Christianity to do good always–even to those who do evil to us. It is Christianity to love our neighbours as ourself, and to do to all men as we would have them do to us. It is Christianity to be gentle, merciful and forgiving, and to keep those qualities quiet in our own hearts, and never make a boast of them or of our prayers or of our love of God, but always to show that we love Him by humbly trying to do right in everything. If we do this, and remember the life and lessons of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and try to act up to them, we may confidently hope that God will forgive us our sins and mistakes, and enable us to live and die in peace.”
~ Charles Dickens

In honor of Charles Dickens, generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period, who was born on this day in 1812.
