How we cite the quotes:
(Part.Chapter.Paragraph)
Quote #1

Perhaps if he prayed, the wish to see Christminster might be forwarded. (1.3.14)

Two major themes rolled into one here: in order to achieve his dreams, Jude turns to prayer and religion for hope. Nice work, Hardy.

Quote #2

Suddenly there came a message along this wind—a message from the place—from some soul residing there, it seemed. (1.2.26)

Christminster is a living thing to Jude. More than that, it's almost a magical place. That is why it is so hard for him to let the Christminster dream die.

Quote #3

He thought again of Christminster, and wished […] that he could have seen for once this attractive city of which he had been told. (1.3.39)

It can't be stated enough: the dream of going to Christminster dominates the early portion of the novel and sets in motion everything that will take place.
