Love
Engrave this Quote For what is love itself, for the one we love best? An enfolding of immeasurable cares which yet are better than any joys outside our love.

-George Eliot
Engrave this Quote But that intimacy of mutual embarrassment, in which each feels that the other is feeling something, having once existed, its effect is not to be done away with.

-George Eliot
Mankind, Man
Engrave this Quote Who has not felt the beauty of a woman's arm? The unspeakable suggestions of tenderness that lie in the dimpled elbow, and all the varied gently-lessening curves, down to the delicate wrist, with its tiniest, almost imperceptible nicks in the firm softness.

Marriage
Engrave this Quote That's what a man wants in a wife, mostly; he wants to make sure one fool tells him he's wise.

Men

Men & Women
Engrave this Quote And when a woman's will is as strong as the man's who wants to govern her, half her strength must be concealment.

-George Eliot
Engrave this Quote I should like to know what is the proper function of women, if it is not to make reasons for husbands to stay at home, and still stronger reasons for bachelors to go out.

-George Eliot
Engrave this Quote I tell you there isn't a thing under the sun that needs to be done at all, but what a man can do better than a woman, unless it's bearing children, and they do that in a poor make-shift way; it had better ha been left to the men.

Mistakes
Engrave this Quote Errors look so very ugly in persons of small means --one feels they are taking quite a liberty in going astray; whereas people of fortune may naturally indulge in a few delinquencies.

Mother
Engrave this Quote A mother's yearning feels the presence of the cherished child even in the degraded man.

-George Eliot
Engrave this Quote But 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 man.

Music
Engrave this Quote I think I should have no other mortal wants, if I could always have plenty of music. It seems to infuse strength into my limbs and ideas into my brain. Life seems to go on without effort, when I am filled with music.

Nature
If we had a keen vision of all that is ordinary in human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow or the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of that roar which is the other side of silence.

Neutrality
Engrave this Quote Our impartiality is kept for abstract merit and demerit, which none of us ever saw.

-George Eliot
Obscurity
Engrave this Quote The growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistorical acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

-George Eliot
Pain
Engrave this Quote There is much pain that is quite noiseless; and vibrations that make human agonies are often a mere whisper in the roar of hurrying existence. There are glances of hatred that stab and raise no cry of murder; robberies that leave man or woman for ever beggared of peace and joy, yet kept secret by the sufferer --committed to no sound except that of low moans in the night, seen in no writing except that made on the face by the slow months of suppressed anguish and early morning tears. Many an inherited sorrow that has marred a life has been breathed into no human ear.

Paradox
Engrave this Quote Play not with paradoxes. That caustic which you handle in order to scorch others may happen to sear your own fingers and make them dead to the quality of things.

Passion
Engrave this Quote Our passions do not live apart in locked chambers but dress in their small wardrobe of notions, bring their provisions to a common table and mess together, feeding out of the common store according to their appetite.

-George Eliot
Past, the
Engrave this Quote With memory set smarting like a reopened wound, a man's past is not simply a dead history, an outworn preparation of the present: it is not a repented error shaken loose from the life: it is a still quivering part of himself, bringing shudders and bitter flavors and the tinglings of a merited shame.

Patronize, Patronizing
Engrave this Quote A patronizing disposition always has its meaner side.

-George Eliot, Adam Bede
Engrave this Quote His honest, patronizing pride in the good-will and respect of everybody about him was a safeguard even against foolish romance, still more against a lower kind of folly.
