Oliver Twist Quotes

11 05 2010

Here are a few of my favorite quotes from Oliver Twist – what are yours?

Please, Sir, I want some more.

When the boy is worth a hundred pounds to me, am I to lose what chance threw me in the way of getting safely, through the whims of a drunken gang that I could whistle away the lives of! And me bound, too, to a born devil, that only wants the will and has the power

Surprises, like misfortunes, seldom come alone.

If I had been less- less fortunate, the world would call it; if some obscure and peaceful life had been my destiny; if I had been poor, sick, helpless; would you have turned from me then? Or has my probable advancement to riches and honour, given this scruple birth?
