Quotes from George Eliot's "Middlemarch"

Chapter 10:
"Genius...may confidently await those messages from the universe which summon it to its peculiar work, only placing itself in an attitude of receptivity towards all sublime chances."

"We know what a masquerade all development is, and what effective shapes may be disguised in helpless embryos. In fact, the world is full of ... handsome dubious eggs called possibilities."
