In this passage, from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, a key development to the plot of the story is depicted through the appearance of the Ghost of Marley, Scrooge’s past business partner. In the quote, Marley is telling Scrooge that he wears chains on his foot for his poor choices in his life. Earlier in the story, Marley is explained to be a businessman alongside Scrooge, thus persuading readers to believe that Marley is a selfish, money-crazed man in his past life, similar to Scrooge. So, by stating how Marley creates his chains for himself through his past actions, asking Scrooge whether he is aware of this “pattern”, Marley conveys Scrooge's future to readers, foreshadowing that Scrooge will end up “fettered” like Marley if Scrooge does not change his greedy, selfish attitude.
Though set during Christmas, the story has a meaning that relates to people year round.

Fred knows Scrooge will not accept, but perhaps knowing Scrooge is the only blood family he has left, he makes an effort.
