[A Tale of Two Cities] Charles Dickens
"Beneath that arch of unmoved and eternal lights; some, so remote from this little earth that the learned tell us it is doubtful whether their rays have even yet discovered it, as a point in space where anything is suffered or done: the shadows of the night were broad and black. All through the cold and restless interval, until dawn, they once more whispered in the ears of Mr. Jarvis Lorry-- sitting opposite the buried man who had been dug out, and wondering what subtle powers were for ever lost to him, and what were capable of restoration-- the old inquiry: 'I hope you care to be recalled to life?' And the old answer: 'I can't say.' The end of the first book." A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
