Fridge: A Tale of Two Cities
Fridge Brilliance
  • The opening lines from A Tale of Two Cities is a prime example of this. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity..." Dickens was describing France on the verge of Revolution, but think about it enough and realize every period in human history is encapsulated by this statement. Even now.
    • Dickens lampshades as much, at the end of the paragraph.
