From A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens:
“It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that, while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”
British author Charles Dickens (1812-1870) wrote A Christmas Carol – originally titled A Christmas Carol in Prose, Being a Ghost-Story of Christmas – in 1843. The novella was published in London on December 19, 1843. The 6000 copies of its first printing sold out in one day.
As 2018 unfolds before us, may we all, every now and then, become contagious.
Happy New Year!
