William Makepeace Thackeray quotes

English novelist,author of 'Vanity Fair', 1811-1863

To endure is greater than to dare; to tire out hostile fortune; to be daunted by no difficulty; to keep heart when all have lost it; to go through intrigue spotless; to forego even ambition when the end is gained - who can say this is not greatness?


This is the first test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no possible value to him.


It's not dying for faith that's so hard, it's living up to it.


If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.


A good laugh is sunshine in the house.


To forego even ambition when the end is gained - who can say this is not greatness?


When I walk with you I feel as if I had a flower in my buttonhole


Attacking is the only secret. Dare and the world always yields; or if it beats you sometimes, dare it again and it will succumb.


It is best to love wisely, no doubt; but to love foolishly is better than not to be able to love at all.
