-although a skilful flatterer is a most delightful companion, if you can keep him all to yourself, his taste becomes very doubtful when he takes to complimenting other people.

I love Dickens as I love Shakespeare. They had the genius to look into the human soul and describe it in all its diversity. They did this without flaunting their intelligence, and with humour and compasion for Mankind. Dickens was nowhere near the poet that Shakespeare was; but he was a much better story-teller.

A Merry Christmas everyone!
