"People that we fly from"

"I have remarked before that nearly every one of the amusing characters of Dickens is in reality a great fool. But I might go further. Almost every one of his amusing characters is in reality a great bore. The very people that we fly to in Dickens are the very people that we fly from in life."

~G.K. Chesterton: Appreciations and Criticisms of the Works of Charles Dickens.
