“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:
when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” – Charles Dickens
“I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable 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.”
— Charles Dickens 🎄
And the voices in the waves are always whispering to Florence, in their ceaseless murmuring, of love – of love, eternal and illimitable, not bounded by the confines of this world, or by the end of time, but ranging still, beyond the sea, beyond the sky, to the invisible country far away! – Charles Dickens
The flowers that sleep by night, opened their gentle eyes and turned them to the day.
The light, creation’s mind, was everywhere, and all things owned its power.
Charles Dickens, The Old Curiosity Shop
