There was no gleam, no shadow, for the heavens, too, were one still, pale cloud; no sound or motion in anything but the dark river that flowed and moaned like an unresting sorrow. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot If a man means to be hard, let him keep in his saddle and speak from that height, above the level of pleading eyes, and with the command of a distant horizon. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot We could never have loved the earth so well if we had had no childhood in it. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot These bitter sorrows of childhood! when sorrow is all new and strange, when hope has not yet got wings to fly beyond the days and weeks, and the space from summer to summer seems measureless. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot "Better spend an extra hundred or two on your son's education, than leave it him in your will." ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot How lovely the little river is, with its dark changing wavelets! It seems to me like a living companion while I wander along the bank, and listen to its low, placid voice. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot Childhood has no forebodings; but then, it is soothed by no memories of outlived sorrow. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot "I've never any pity for conceited people, because I think they carry their comfort about with them." ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot "I should like to know what is the proper function of women, if it is not to make reasons for husbands to stay at home, and still stronger reasons for bachelors to go out." ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot "I think I should have no other mortal wants, if I could always have plenty of music. It seems to infuse strength into my limbs, and ideas into my brain. Life seems to go on without effort, when I am filled with music." ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot
