Daily Dose

From Charles Dickens: His Life & Work, by Stephen Leacock


"We live in a badly damaged world. It is a world of flickering shadows, tossed by electric currents, of a babel of voices on the harassed air, a world of inconceivable rapidity, of instantaneous effects, of sudden laughter and momentary tragedy, where every sensation is made and electrocuted in a second and passes into oblivion."

From Chapter One
