"Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death.... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man."

A Tale of Two Cities was one of the best books I've ever read. I didn't really care for it at first. It didn't make much sense, but when I got about half way through, things started to unravel. The last few pages made the book worth reading. Don't just read the last few pages though. That would ruin everything.
