Great Expectations Chapter 39 Quotes

How we cite the quotes:
(Chapter.Paragraph)

Abel Magwitch > Pip

Quote 7

"Look'ee here, Pip. I'm your second father. You're my son—more to me nor any son. I've put away money, only for you to spend." (39.67)

Magwitch may treat Pip like a long lost friend/brother/son, but Pip doesn't necessarily requite the sentiment—he doesn't value friendships that don't fit into his little vision of the future.
