Elizabeth Gaskell
“I do try to say, God’s will be done, sir,” said the Squire, looking up at Mr. Gibson for the first time, and speaking with more life in his voice; “but it’s harder to be resigned than happy people think.”
Elizabeth Gaskell, Wives and Daughters

Elizabeth Gaskell
“Nay, nay!” said the Squire. “It’s not so easy to break one’s heart. Sometimes I’ve wished it were. But one has to go on living—‘all the appointed days,’ as is said in the Bible.”
Elizabeth Gaskell, Wives and Daughters

Elizabeth Gaskell
“I say Gibson, we're old friends, and you're a fool if you take anything I say as an offense. Madam your wife and I didn't hit it off the only time I ever saw her. I won't say she was silly, but I think one of us was silly, and it wasn't me!”
Elizabeth Gaskell, Wives and Daughters
