Dickens Quote – Great Expectations 

“Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon blinding dust of the earth, overlying our hard hearts” ~ Pip – Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
Years ago, I read Great Expectations and did not enjoy it. I picked it up again this week, and am enamored. Dickens social commentary is both acerbic and tender. I have reached the halfway point of Pip’s Great Expectations, and feel that this quote sums up his young life.
