bron : David Copperfield - Charles Dickens,
Penguin Books, 1966, blz 9-11
Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must be show. To begin my life with the beginning of my life, I record that I was born [as I have been informed and believe] on a Friday, at twelve o'clock at night. It was remarked that the clock began to strike, and I began to cry, simultaneously.

Charles Dickens - David Copperfield, chapter I.
Kerstvertelling - Charles Dickens
Hoewel ik nu niet bepaald wil beweren, dat het op zichzelf de gelukkigste en meest benijdenswaardige omstandigheid is die iemand te beurt kan vallen, om in een werkhuis te worden geboren, stel ik toch op prijs te verklaren, dat in dit bijzonder geval het voor Oliver Twist nog het beste was wat hem bij mogelijkheid had kunnen overkomen.
Charles Dickens
