Truth, from George Eliot

"We have all got to exert ourselves a little to keep sane, and call things by the same name as other people call them."

- Geroge Eliot, through the immaculate vessel that is Mrs. Cadwallader.

Still reading Middlemarch. There's something about an 800 page book that's grounding. Like, "I don't have TIME for your foolishness. I'm planning cottages with Dorothea."

    1. You must! I had been putting it off for years. Now I'm in the last hundred pages and don't want it to end.

    1. The novel is Middlemarch by George Eliot. It's huge at about 800 pages, but a wonderful, complex, brilliant book.
