My quote comes from Northanger Abby by Jane Austen.
You have gained a new source of enjoyment, and it is well to have as many holds upon happiness as possible.

Henry is talking to Catherine about her new found love of Hyacinths.

The classic opening to Pride & Prejudice: It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

This quote is from A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Charles Dickens.
Fred is talking to Scrooge -
"There are many things from which I might have derived good, by which I have not profited, I dare say," returned the nephew.
Christmas among the rest. But I am sure I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round--apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that--as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. And therefore, uncle, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!"
