With pearls about life, business and women, this rundown of Dickens gold will leave you, like Oliver, wanting more.
Charles John Huffam Dickens was quite the man. For what he lost in hair follicles, he more than made up for in facial hair - oh, and he wasn't that bad of a writer, either. With Dickens' classic tales as adored now as they were in his native 19th century, virtually all of them have since made their way to the stage, TV or cinema screen. Safe to assume, then, that he had a brain in him (though had he of mastered eternal life he'd be absolutely minted from movie rights).
So, whether you're in need of advice on love, life, religion business or even trifles - Mr. Dickens is suitably prepared to inspire you. Take it away, Chaz...
