  Quotes From The Christmas Carol...


Many people have never read "The Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens. They feel like they have because they have seen so many of the great movie adaptations(the George C. Scott version is my personal favorite), but as good as they are, you still miss alot. It's only 128 pages, and it is not only great for getting you in the Christmas spirit, it's great for making you look at your priorities and remember that life is about people and not profit.

Here's the great quote from the beginning of the book, where Scrooge and his nephew Fred argue about the value of keeping Christmas.

"Nephew!" returned the uncle sternly, "Keep Christmas in your own way, and let me keep it in mine."
"Keep it!" repeated Scrooge's nephew, "But you don't keep it."
"Let me leave it alone, then," said Scrooge. "Much good may it do you! Much good it has ever done you!"
"There are many things from which I might have derived good by which I have not profited,I dare say," returned the nephew, "Christmas among the rest. But I am sure I have always though of Christmas-time, when it has come round-apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that-as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant 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. And therefore uncle, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!"


Thanks for reading,

AC
