Classic literature has a way of sticking with us. Whether reading them with great scrutiny in school or casually for enjoyment, some excerpts make us stop and ponder. They’re frequently about life and love, sometimes about identity, sometimes about idiosyncrasies, and sometimes, they impart such a great understanding of humanity that they transcend generations. Here are some of our favorites from our Word Cloud Classics Series.

From Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
From A Christmas Carol and Other Holiday Treasures by Charles Dickens.
From Great Expectations by Charles Dickens.
From The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
