Great Expectations by Rose Pennington


"I must be taken as I have been made. The success is not mine, the failure is not mine, but the two together make me (240)" -Estella

I chose this quote because without failure, nobody would be who their selves.

"For an hour or more, I remained too stunned to think; and it was not until I began to think, that I began fully to know how wrecked I was, and how the ship in which I had sailed was gone to pieces (253)."

I chose this quote because it shows what is happening in Pip's life; everything is falling apart.

"I have not bestowed my tenderness anywhere. I have never had any such thing (186)" -Estella

I chose this quote because it shows that Estella never truly loved pip. This attitude remains and she never marries pip.

End of Part 2

Pip realizes that he is not made to marry Estella and The Convict is actually the benefactor. He gets sad thinking about Joe because he left him for a dream that would never come true.


1. Failed love and its effect

2. broken dreams

3. barriers between social classes


Not all dreams can be fulfilled, and not all goals can be accomplished.
