It is the best of times, it is the worst of times, it is

the age of wisdom, it is the age of foolishness, it is the

epoch of belief, it is the epoch of incredulity, it is the

season of Light, it is the season of Darkness, it is the

spring of hope, it is the winter of despair, we had

everything before us, we had nothing before us, we are

all going direct to Heaven, we are all going direct the

other way
