George Eliot quotes page 3
The mother's yearning, that completest type of the life in another life which is the essence
of real human love, feels the presence of the cherished child even in the debased, degraded
A toddling little girl is a center of common feeling which makes the most dissimilar people
understand each other.
What are a handful of reasonable men against a crowd with stones in their hands?
The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us, and we see nothing but sand; the
angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone.
We hand folks over to God's mercy, and show none ourselves.
