Nothing propagates so fast. ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens It was one of those hot, silent nights, when people sit at windows listening for the thunder which they know will shortly break; when they recall dismal tales of hurricanes and earthquakes; and of lonely travellers on open plains, and lonely ships at sea, struck by lightning. ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens "My meaning is, that no man can expect his children to respect what he degrades." ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens "A man can well afford to be as bold as brass, my good fellow, when he gets gold in exchange!" ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens
