"You may be an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of underdone potato. There's more of gravy than of grave about you, whatever you are!"

~ A Christmas Carol

Not so much a quote, as a vocabulary word that really ought to be much more widely used:

"Podsnappery" : insular complacency and blinkered self-satisfaction; the
behaviour or outlook characteristic of Dickens's Mr Podsnap in Our Mutual Friend.

"Well, I was about to flap my arms and fly to the moon, but if you want me to wait-" from Faith of the Fallen

Yes...I'm well into Book 2 now, and waiting for that family to reappear. Surely we aren't through with them!

Interesting to note that the Born Today module on my home page does not mention Mr. Dickens!

What a very odd choice for a cutoff! Jane Austen, the Brontes, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Rabelais, etc., etc.,!

Yeah. Remind me to argue it again when I get home :-)
