The Age of Wisdom?

Family, if ever there was a time to look back in history and take a quotation from Charles Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities”, this is it.

Ponder on this opening of his book.

Don’t give as much time to the beauty of the prose as to the dark meaning beneath the beautiful words.

Our Lord is talking to you through this passage.  Listen to Him.

“It was the best of times; it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom; it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief; it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light; it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope; it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us; we had nothing before us; we were all going direct to Heaven; we were all going direct the other way.”

    Dear Bob and Penny, This quote reminds me of two things, one is the Bible passages of Job, whereby he had his strong faith, and his friends could not persuede him to away from it, and the quote about a glass being half full or half empty. All depends on a person’s perspective,hope or lack thereof. I would presume that the stated quote at the beginning of your blog to be the product of a man who didn’t have a clue which way he wanted to go, dispite his brilliant mind and God given gift as a writer. End of story. I have never read “Tale of two cities”.
