to reach a desert waste. — George Augustus Henry Sala

George Augustus Henry Sala Quotes 758874

In the intercourse of social life, it is by little acts of watchful kindness recurring daily and hourly,
and opportunities of doing kindnesses if sought for are forever starting up,
it is by words, by tones, by gestures, by looks, that affection is won and preserved. He who neglects these trifles yet boasts that, whenever a great sacrifice is called for, he shall be ready to make it, will rarely be loved. The likelihood is, he will not make it; and if he does, it will be much rather for his own sake than for his neighbor's. — George Augustus Henry Sala

George Augustus Henry Sala Quotes 1776489

We acquire the love of people who, being in our proximity, are presumed to know us; and we receive reputation or celebrity, from such as are not personally acquainted with us.
