Well Said: Dickens, A Friend

No one thinks first of Mr. Dickens as a writer. He is at once, through his books, a friend.

I like to think of George Orwell feeling that way about Charles Dickens. Orwell wrote a long essay about Dickens which I just discovered. I haven't read it yet, but feel that with a quote like that above, I will like it.
