George Eliot

After all, the true seeing is within. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot There is no creature whose inward being is so strong that it is not greatly determined by what lies outside it. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot Pride helps us; and pride is not a bad thing when it only urges us to hide our own hurts—not to hurt others. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot For pain must enter into its glorified life of memory before it can turn into compassion. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot It is always fatal to have music or poetry interrupted. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot It is a narrow mind which cannot look at a subject from various points of view. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot "Explain! Tell a man to explain how he dropped into hell! Explain my preference! I never had a preference for her, any more than I have a preference for breathing. No other woman exists by the side of her. I would rather touch her hand if it were dead, than I would touch any other woman's living." ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot Unlike the gold which needed nothing, and must be worshipped in close-locked solitude—which was hidden away from the daylight, was deaf to the song of birds, and started to no human tones—Eppie was a creature of endless claims and ever-growing desires, seeking and loving sunshine, and living sounds, and living movements; making trial of everything, with trust in new joy, and stirring the human kindness in all eyes that looked on her. ~ Silas Marner by George Eliot "There is a pale shade of bribery which is sometimes called prosperity." ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot With memory set smarting like a reopened wound, a man's past is not simply a dead history, an outworn preparation of the present: it is not a repented error shaken loose from the life: it is a still quivering part of himself, bringing shudders and bitter flavors and the tinglings of a merited shame. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot
