A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is one of my favorite books, so clearly I had to make a top 10 book quotes.
“It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.”
“For it is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.”
“Marley was dead: to begin with.”
“Bah,” said Scrooge, “Humbug.”
“Marley was dead, to begin with … This must be distintly understood, or nothing wonderful can come of the story I am going to relate.”
“and, unlike the celebrated herd in the poem, they were not forty children conducting themselves as one, but every child was conducting itself like forty.”
“I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I am as merry as a schoolboy. I am as giddy as a drunken man. A merry Christmas to everybody! A happy New Year to all the world! Hallo here! Whoop! Hallo!”
“His own heart laughed: and that was quite enough for him.”
“I will live in the past, the present, and the future. The spirits of all three shall strive within me.”
“It’s humbug still!” said Scrooge. “I won’t believe it.”
