Charles Dickens Quote

Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens

"Those darling byegone times, Mr Carker," said Cleopatra, "with their delicious fortresses, and their dear old dungeons, and their delightful places of torture, and their romantic vengeances, and their picturesque assaults and sieges, and everything that makes life truly charming! How dreadfully we have degenerated!" ~ Dombey and Son
