The Idea of Angels

The idea of angels taking care of everything for those of the superior heart

is a recurrent theme in the novels of one of the most popular liberals of all time – Charles Dickens. It always amused me reading his heroes, how often characters like Oliver Twist, Pip and Esther – those who had the correct conscience – invariably relied on the easy money flowing from wealthy benefactors and inheritances. Somehow he had trouble connecting purity of thought with the practical business of housing and feeding oneself. -- - RobCase | 09/07/2008 @ House of Eratosthenes
