George Eliot

famous english writer
Cruelty, like every other vice, requires no motive outside of itself; it only requires opportunity.More George Eliot quotes [09/10/2011 04:09:58]
Primary (the LDS Church's Sunday school for children) is where you go to do with somebody else's mother the things you would do with your own mother if she weren't so busy teaching Primary.More George Eliot quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Mighty is the force of motherhood! It transforms all things by its vital heat; it turns timidity into fierce courage, and dreadless defiance into tremulous submission; it turns thoughtlessness into foresight, and yet stills all anxiety into calm content; it makes selfishness become self-denial, and gives even to hard vanity the glance of admiring love.More George Eliot quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The tendency toward good in human nature has a force which no creed can utterly counteract, and which insures the ultimate triumph of that tendency over all dogmatic perversions.More George Eliot quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Perspective, as its inventor remarked, is a beautiful thing. What horrors of damp huts, where human beings languish, may not become picturesque through aerial distance! What hymning of cancerous vices may we not languish over as sublimest art in the safe remoteness of a strange language and artificial phrase! Yet we keep a repugnance to rheumatism and other painful effects when presented in our personal experience.More George Eliot quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
