Terms in this set (5)
"A solitary child, neglected by his friends, is left there still."
This quote could suggest why Scrooge is the way he is now. He was neglected by society as a child so feels he can't join society now, as he's afraid of rejection. He cries when seeing this showing the feelings are still very raw to him.
"There was a boy singing a Christmas carol at my door last night. I should like to have given him something: that's all."
This is another quote that shows a change in Scrooge. By seeing himself as a young boy, he starts to feel empathy towards others.
"During this whole time Scrooge had acted like a man out of his wits."
This quote is showing how Scrooge is really changing, he's forgotten about the views he used to have on society.

This shows Scrooge realises not everything's about money, or how much things are worth but more about the thought and the spirit in which its done.
"Quite alone in the world, I do believe."
In this quote Scrooge realises that he doesn't want to be alone, and is upset that other people see him all alone.
