    Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail. Mind! I don't mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail.

      ever in fiction. I reread A Christmas Carol ever year during December; prefer that to most of the cinema re-creations (though I do want to see the stage performance done by ACT in San Francisco one of these years).

      Civility is the way of telling someone to go fuck themselves in such a way that the someone agrees it probably is a good idea.
