I had never seen anyone then, and I have never seen anyone since, who more strongly expressed to me, in every look and tone, a natural incapacity to do anything secret and mean.

“Would you like to be taught Latin?’ I said briskly. ‘I will teach it to you with pleasure as I learn it.’
‘Oh, thank you, Master Copperfield,’ he answered, shaking his head. ‘I am sure it’s very kind of you to make the offer, but I am much too umble to accept it.’

If he is to get on in life, he must get on umbly, Master Copperfield.”

In complexion Miss Brass was sallow – rather a dirty sallow, so to speak – but this hue was agreeably relieved by the healthy glow which mantled in the extreme tip of her laughing nose.”
― Charles Dickens, The Old Curiosity Shop
