Two gleanings from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol (1843):
“It is always the person who is not in the predicament who knows what ought to have been done in it, and would unquestionably have done it too.”
“It may be, that in the sight of Heaven, you are more worthless and less fit to live than millions like this poor man’s child. Oh God! to hear the Insect on the leaf pronouncing on the too much life among his hungry brothers in the dust.”
