Dark Knight Rises Conclusion; A Tale of Two Cities

I really loved the selection from A Tale of Two Cities that was read at the conclusion of Dark Knight Rises, so thought I would share it with you today:

“I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss, and, in their struggles to be truly free, in their triumphs and defeats, through long years to come, I see the evil of this time and of the previous time of which this is the natural birth, gradually making expiation for itself and wearing out..I see that I hold a sanctuary in their hearts, and in the hearts of their descendants, generations hence…It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.”

–Quote read by Commissioner Gordon at the end of Dark Knight Rises, from the final pages of A Tale of Two Cities
