Quote #10

Crush humanity out of shape once more, under similar hammers, and it will twist itself into the same tortured forms. Sow the same seed of rapacious license and oppression over again, and it will surely yield the same fruit according to its kind. (3.15.1)

Dickens’s narrator makes his moral pretty obvious. The French Revolution wasn’t some freak accident in the course of human history. Any oppressed people will seek justice and perhaps even revenge.
