George Eliot quotes

I like not only to be loved, but also to be told I am loved.

The finest language is mostly made up of simple unimposing words.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Consequences are unpitying.

Only in the agony of parting do we look into the depths of love.

Different taste in jokes is a great strain on the affections.

No great deed is done by falterers who ask for certainty.

Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.

Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another.

Life began with waking up and loving my mother's face.

Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.

Adventure is not outside man; it is within.

Anger and jealousy can no more bear to lose sight of their objects than love.

Wear a smile and have friends; wear a scowl and have wrinkles.

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.

It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.

What do we live for, if not to make life less difficult for each other?

What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined - to strengthen each other - to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories.

Little children are still the symbol of the eternal marriage between love and duty.

What loneliness is more lonely than distrust?
