May the chance often befall you


"Be the master of your fate, be the captain of your soul, but do not hesitate, should the chance befall you, to be the slave of your heart." ~Robert Brault

  1. Thank you so much for your quotes! I used several of them on my Thanksgiving post: http://lauranicoledesign.blogspot.com/2010/11/thanksgiving-table-settings.html

    Here are some of my favorite quotes from the novel, Middlemarch.

    "She did not know then that it was Love who had come to her briefly, as in a dream before awakening, with the hues of morning on his wings." -page 519

    "I never felt it a misfortune to have nothing till now," he said. "But poverty may be as bad as leprosy, if it divides us from what we most care for." -page 517

    And my favorite quote in the novel so far: "I shall never forget you. I have never forgotten any one whom I once knew. My life has never been crowded..." -page 515 (I think this one of the most beautiful statements I have ever read.)

    Thank you again and Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
