“No time to spare”


I don’t know if anyone else has ever caught this, but in Great Expectations, Dickens repeats a phrase. I don’t know if he does it on purpose, or if it was purely an accident? 

“I had no time for verification, no time for selection, no time for anything, for I had no time to spare.”

– Chapter 2, Great Expectations


“Towards the marshes I now went straight, having no time to spare.”

– Chapter 52, Great Expectations
