Passage of the Day: William Thackeray’s “Vanity Fair”

William Thackeray (1811-1863) was a British satirist compering for popularity with Charles Dickens.

“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 to you: laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly companion: and so let all young persons take their choice.”
