„The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face.“

— William Makepeace Thackeray
Context: The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion; and so let all young persons take their choice. Vol. I, ch. 2.

„Dare, and the world always yields: or, if it beat you sometimes, dare again, and it will succumb.“

— William Makepeace Thackeray
