The Quotidian, October 4, 2010 ~ Lighten Burdens of Others

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it to anyone else.” ~ Charles Dickens (February 7, 1812 to June 9, 1870)

Charles Dickens was a British novelist and writer of short stories. His novels included The Adventures of Oliver Twist (1839) and Great Expectations (1861). According to Wikipedia, his novels and short stories “due to their popularity have never gone out of print.”
