Charles Dickens Museum

DSC01986 (2048x1536)

This is the bicentennial year of the birth of one of the greatest and most famous English writers of all time: Charles Dickens.

I guess the first time I came across one of his works was when Dad bought me an illustrated and abridged edition of Oliver Twist. I was hooked.

I went on to read some more of his works, including David Copperfield and Great Expectations. I never got around to completing Dombey and Son, though. His novels have been dramatized and made into movies countless times.

We finally visited the Charles Dickens Museum yesterday. This is where he lived between 1837-1839 and wrote the whole of Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby. An unforgettable experience!

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
