George Eliot
Women's Voices: Quotations by Women
Quote collection assembled by Jone Johnson Lewis
Quotation: What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?
Quotation: The strongest principle of growth lies in human choice.
Quotation: I'm not denyin' that women are foolish; God Almighty made 'em to match men.
Quotation: No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence.
Quotation: Blessed is the man who, having nothing to stay, abstains from giving us worthy evidence of the fact.
Quotation: Our deeds determine us as much as we determine our deeds.
Quotation: Excellence encourages one about life generally; it shows the spiritual wealth of the world.
Quotation: Perhaps the most delightful friendships are those in which there is much agreement, much disputation, and yet more personal liking.
Quotation: I like not only to be loved, but to be told that I am loved; the realm of silence is large enough beyond the grave.
Quotation: There are glances of hatred that stab, and raise no cry of murder.
Quotation: Oh may I join the choir invisible
of those immortal dead who live again
In minds made better by their presence.
Quotation: I am open to conviction on all points except dinner and debts. I hold that the one must be eaten and the other paid. Those are my only prejudices.
Quotation: Surely it is not true blessedness to be free of sorrow while there is sorrow and sin in the world. Sorrow is a part of love and love does not seek to throw it off.
