Context

“I will not rest a moment.»
«That's well. I have known such energy as yours do great things before now—though never,» he added, with a smile and a sigh together, «such great things as this. But try! Of little worth as life is when we misuse it, it is worth that effort. It would cost nothing to lay down if it were not.»
«I will go,» said Doctor Manette, «to the Prosecutor and the President straight, and I will go to others whom it is better not to name. I will write too, and—But stay! There is a Celebration in the streets, and no one will be accessible until dark.»” source
