Here's another on of my favorite quotes from "A Christmas Carol", it's about Fred's wife.
"He said that Christmas was a humbug, as I live!" cried Scrooge's nephew. "He believed it too!"
"More shame for him, Fred!" said Scrooge's niece indignantly. Bless those women, they never do anything by halves. They are always in earnest. She was pretty; exceedingly pretty. With a dimpled, surprised-looking capital face, a ripe little mouth that seemed made to be kissed-as no doubt it was, all kinds of good little dots about her chin, that melted into one another when she laughed, and the sunniest pair of eyes in any little creature's head. Altogether she was what you would have called provoking, you know, but satisfactory, too. Oh, perfectly satisfactory!"
I know it may not be anything very Christmasy, I just love his words and how he describes her. After I read this, I want to meet this person. I find her personally believeable, and as attractive a woman as I can imagine. I hope I can write as well as this some day.
