14 Expectations Quotes from Literature

Do not be trapped by the need to achieve anything. This way, you achieve everything. ~ Dune Messiah by Frank Herbert Life is so constructed, that the event does not, cannot, will not, match the expectation. ~ Villette by Charlotte Bronte It was all very well for an Englishman like Mr. Fogg to make the tour of the world with a carpet-bag; a lady could not be expected to travel comfortably under such conditions. ~ Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne "One event makes another: what we anticipate seldom occurs; what we least expected generally happens; and time can only prove which is most for our advantage." ~ Henrietta Temple by Benjamin Disraeli "Uncertainty and expectation are the joys of life. Security is an insipid thing, and the overtaking and possessing of a wish discovers the folly of the chase." ~ Love for Love by William Congreve But Duty has a trick of behaving unexpectedly--something like a heavy friend whom we have amiably asked to visit us, and who breaks his leg within our gates. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot There are so many of us, and our lots are so different, what wonder that Nature's mood is often in harsh contrast with the great crisis of our lives? We are children of a large family, and must learn, as such children do, not to expect that our hurts will be made much of--to be content with little nurture and caressing, and help each other the more. ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot "It's grand, and you canna expect to be baith grand and comfortable." ~ The Little Minister by James M. Barrie That terrifying product of the social system he belonged to and believed in, the young girl who knew nothing and expected everything, looked back at him like a stranger through May Welland's familiar features; and once more it was borne in on him that marriage was not the safe anchorage he had been taught to think, but a voyage on uncharted seas. ~ The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton "There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere." ~ Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
