Charles Dickens

My meaning simply is, that whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do well; that whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself to completely; that in great aims and in small, I have always been thoroughly in earnest. — Charles Dickens, David Copperfield. (Penguin Classics; Revised edition, December 28, 2004) Originally published 1849.
