    I think that Charles Dickens is an example of overcoming, especially for all the difficulties he had before beginning his career as a writer. He shows that you can´t start with the top of the success, but you can always reach it.
    I believe that everyone knows, at least, his story called: "A Christmas Carol" , which also has been the inspiration for many films on the theme of Christmas during the last years.

  2. It's an interesting entry!
    I have looked for some phrases of this novelist Englishman and one that has motivated me has been:"A man never knows what he is capable until he tries".
    Many times,we have a potential that we don't know that it exists until we defy ourselves and we realize what we can do.This must motivate us to continue making our best efforts!

    1. Kathy, trying to find motivation to keep us going is a good attitude for life. Good for you!

    I only have read one book of him : Oliver Twist. I read it two years back and I liked it very much. When I don´t have many exams, maybe I'll read more books by this author, but first, I really want to read others like "Crónica de una muerte anunciada" by Gabriel García Márquez.

  4. I am not a fan of Dickens´myself but remember there are quite a few pages in the internet where you can read his books
