Quotes from Les Misérables XI:  Diamonds are to be found only in the darkness of the earth, and truth in the darkness of the mind.

We can no more prevent a thought returning to the mind than we can prevent the sea from rising on the foreshore. To the sailor it is the tide, to the uneasy conscience it is remorse. God moves the soul as He moves the oceans.

Diamonds are to be found only in the darkness of the earth, and truth in the darkness of the mind.

Is there any man who, once at least in his life, has not found himself in that blackness of uncertainty?

Punctuality is a part of kindness
