My favorite quotes:
  • Weaknesses and errors must be forgiven—alas! they are not alien to us. ~ George Eliot
  • We may determine not to gather any cherries and keep our hands sturdily in our pockets, but we can't prevent our mouths from watering. ~ George Eliot
  • A man can never do anything at variance with his own nature. He carries within him the germ of his most exceptional action; and if we wise people make eminent fools of ourselves on any particular occasion, we must endure the legitimate conclusion that we carry a few grains of folly to our ounce of wisdom. ~ George Eliot
  • Sleep comes to the perplexed—if the perplexed are only weary enough. ~ George Eliot
  • Pity that consequences are determined not by excuses but by actions! ~ George Eliot
  • The beginning of hardship is like the first taste of bitter food—it seems for a moment unbearable; yet, if there is nothing else to satisfy our hunger, we take another bite and find it possible to go on. ~ George EliotExamine your words well, and you will find that even when you have no motive to be false, it is a very hard thing to say the exact truth, even about your own immediate feelings—much harder than to say something fine about them which is NOT the exact truth. ~ George Eliot
