Great Expectations
My Father's Family Name Being Pirrip, And My Christian Name Philip,
My Infant Tongue Could Make Of Both Names Nothing Longer Or More
Explicit Than Pip. So, I Called Myself Pip, And Came To Be Called
Pip.



I Give Pirrip As My Father's Family Name, On The Authority Of His
Tombstone And My Sister - Mrs. Joe Gargery, Who Married The
Blacksmith. As I Never Saw My Father Or My Mother, And Never Saw
Any Likeness Of Either Of Them (For Their Days Were Long Before The
Days Of Photographs), My First Fancies Regarding What They Were
Like, Were Unreasonably Derived From Their Tombstones. The Shape Of
The Letters On My Father's, Gave Me An Odd Idea That He Was A
Square, Stout, Dark Man, With Curly Black Hair. From The Character
And Turn Of The Inscription, "Also Georgiana Wife Of The Above," I
Drew A Childish Conclusion That My Mother Was Freckled And Sickly.
To Five Little Stone Lozenges, Each About A Foot And A Half Long,
Which Were Arranged In A Neat Row Beside Their Grave, And Were
Sacred To The Memory Of Five Little Brothers Of Mine - Who Gave Up
Trying To Get A Living, Exceedingly Early In That Universal
Struggle - I Am Indebted For A Belief I Religiously Entertained
That They Had All Been Born On Their Backs With Their Hands In
Their Trousers-Pockets, And Had Never Taken Them Out In This State
Of Existence.
