Expectations © Marlen Wagner

Having great expectations, having a preconceived notion of what is likely to happen – the prospect of future good (possessions, social advancement) goes astray not only in Dickens’ novel Great Expectations. But is it therefore more appropriate to allow no expectations at all? At least the feeling of expecting something to happen will remain with even the most disillusioned person – even if this feeling is not directed towards future positive things.
