Great Expectations

Great Expectations

Charles Dickens

From the moment of birth, we are given a manual of expectations to be filled.  Expectations injected from outside sources such as parents, siblings or environmental circumstances eventually subside, leaving one standing toe-to-toe in a tug of war versus happiness or reality.


The author, Charles Dickens of Great Expectations was fully aware of this conundrum.  This book has been labeled a classic due to the understanding that we all have a bit Charles Dickens’ character, Pip in us… Seeking self worth through what society determines; until more times than not, as we mature, we exhale after the realization that happiness is an internal process and not some external situation such as status or wealth.


A brilliant read.
