There is a quotation from Dickens which I am trying to remember, most probably from Great Expectations
or Little Dorrit
which is all about how there are people coming towards us and we are moving towards them and we will have effects on them, and they have purposes connected with us, of which we know nothing until after things have happened.
Can anyone place the reference? I would like to include it in my Nip/Tuck
essay because I am making some analogies between the hyper-realism of Ryan Murphy and Dickens.
