“My love for my father has never been touched or approached by any other love. I hold him in my heart of hearts as a man apart from all other men, as one apart from all other beings.”
“[On her father, Charles Dickens:] 'The master' was reading at a small table, on which a lighted candle was placed. Suddenly the candle went out. My father, who was much interested in his book, relighted the candle, stroked the cat, who was looking at him pathetically he noticed, and continued his reading. A few minutes later, as the light became dim, he looked up just in time to see puss deliberately put out the candle with his paw, and then look appealingly toward him. This second and unmistakable hint was not disregarded, and puss was given the petting he craved.”
“I have been spoken of as my father's 'favorite daughter.' If he had a favorite daughter — and I hope and believe that the one was as dear to him as the other — my dear sister must claim that honor.”
Mamie Dickens, English writer, editor
