More helpful than all wisdom is one draught of simple human pity that will not forsake us. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot Jealousy is never satisfied with anything short of an omniscience that would detect the subtlest fold of the heart. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot There is something strangely winning to most women in that offer of the firm arm; the help is not wanted physically at that moment, but the sense of help, the presence of strength that is outside them and yet theirs, meets a continual want of the imagination. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot "One gets a bad habit of being unhappy." ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot She and Stephen were in that stage of courtship which makes the most exquisite moment of youth, the freshest blossom-time of passion,--when each is sure of the other's love, but no formal declaration has been made, and all is mutual divination, exalting the most trivial word, the lightest gesture, into thrills delicate and delicious as wafted jasmine scent. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot "But I can't give up wishing," said Philip, impatiently. "It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them. How can we ever be satisfied without them until our feelings are deadened?" ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot "If I got places, sir, it was because I made myself fit for 'em. If you want to slip into a round hole, you must make a ball of yourself; that's where it is." ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot If boys and men are to be welded together in the glow of transient feeling, they must be made of metal that will mix, else they inevitably fall asunder when the heat dies out. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot War, like other dramatic spectacles, might possibly cease for want of a "public." ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot Perhaps it is that high achievements demand some other unusual qualification besides an unusual desire for high prizes. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot
