Polly put the kettle on, we’ll all have a cup of tea.

–Grip in chapter 17 of Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens

I have a new book of quotations, The Oxford Book of Quotations Third Edition. Unlike my other book of quotations, this one is organized by author so I went looking for something from Dickens’ historical novel which Miss M implored me to read. I thought this about the tea was funny but I didn’t recall the character Grip. And then I saw it’s from chapter 17.

As I said, I’m not there yet.
