Quotes from George Eliot
"A woman's heart must be of such a size and no larger, else it must be pressed small, like Chinese feet; her happiness is to be made as cakes are, by a fixed recipe."
"Life began with waking up and loving my mother's face."
"Whether happiness may come or not, one should try and prepare one's self to do without it."
"I like not only to be loved, but also to be told I am loved."
"Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another."
"All the learnin' my father paid for was a bit o' birch at one end and an alphabet at the other."
"Anger and jealousy can no more bear to lose sight of their objects than love."
