Quotes from George Eliot's "Middlemarch"

"The mistakes that we male and female mortals make when we have our own way might fairly raise some wonder that we are so fond of it."

"Mr. Cadwallader was a large man, with a sweet smile; very plain and rough in his exterior, but with that solid imperturbable ease and good-humour which is infectious, and like great grassy hills in the sunshine, quiets even an irritated egoism, and makes it rather ashamed of itself."
