George Eliot
“For the egoism which enters into our theories does not affect their sincerity; rather, the more our egoism is satisfied, the more robust is our belief.”
George Eliot, Middlemarch

George Eliot
“One’s self-satisfaction is an untaxed kind of property which it is very unpleasant to find deprecated.”
George Eliot, Middlemarch

Cormac McCarthy
“What if the catalyst or the key to understanding creation lay in the immense mind of the whale?...Suppose if God came back from wherever it is he's been and asked us smilingly if we'd figured it out yet. Suppose he wanted to know if it had finally occurred to us to ask the whale. And then he sort of looked around and he said, "By the way, where are the whales?”
Cormac McCarthy

George Eliot
“But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric 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, Middlemarch
