Buchzitat von Charles Dickens aus Oliver Twist

In einer Stadt, die ich aus mancherlei Gründen lieber nicht näher bezeichnen möchte, der ich aber auch keinen erdichteten Namen beilegen will, befindet sich, wie in den meisten Städten, mögen sie groß oder klein sein, von alters her ein Armenhaus. Hier wurde an einem Tage, dessen Datum zu nennen ich mir nicht die Mühe machen will, weil es den Leser durchaus nicht interessieren kann, der Weltenbürger geboren, dessen Name an der Spitze dieses Kapitels angegeben worden ist.

Among other public buildings in a certain town, which for many reasons it will be prudent to refrain from mentioning, and to which I will assign no fictitious name, there is one anciently common to most towns, great or small: to wit, a workhouse; and in this workhouse was born; on a day and date which I need not trouble myself to repeat, inasmuch as it can be of no possible consequence to the reader, in this stage of the business at all events; the item of mortality whose name is prefixed to the head of this chapter.
