Pick a passage from anywhere in the novel that you believe makes an important statement. Copy the passage and why you believe it is important.

I'm writing this as a journal so i need good answers but not super long.

"As we got more and more into debt, breakfast became a hollower and hollower form, and, being on one occasion at breakfast-time threatened (by letter) with legal proceedings, "not unwholly unconnected," as my local paper might put it, "with jewellery," I went so far as to seize the Avenger by his blue collar and shake him off his feet – so that he was actually in the air, like a booted Cupid – for presuming to suppose that we wanted a roll."

Part Two/ Chapter 34

This passage makes an important statement because it's the absolute truth. Money breeds the wish to have more money........ there's never enough, people always want more......... but they're never really happy.
