It was the perfect of occasions, it was the worst of occasions, it was the age of knowledge, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of perception, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Mild, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had all the things earlier than us, we had nothing earlier than us, we had been all going direct to Heaven, we had been all going direct the opposite means…
