Piteous quotes

bookmark email link cite
    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteWe women are always in danger of living too exclusively in the affections; and though our affections are perhaps the best gifts we have, we ought also to have our share of the more independent life / some joy in things for their own sake. It is piteous to see the helplessness of some sweet women when their affections are disappointed / because all their teaching has been, that they can only delight in study of any kind for the sake of a personal love. They have never contemplated an independent delight in ideas as an experience which they could confess without being laughed at. Yet surely women need this defense against passionate affliction even more than men.

 George Eliot quotes (English Victorian Novelist. Pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans, 1819-1880)
