I haven’t been providing quotes lately, but I found my Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations the other day. I opened it at random and came across these George Eliot quotes that seemed worth sharing:
“There’s no real making amends in the world, any more nor can you mend a wrong subtraction by doing your addition right.”
“It’s but little good you do a-watering the last year’s crops.”
“A patronizing disposition always has its meaner side.”
“It’s them that take advantage that get advantage i’ this world.”
“He was like a cock who thought the sun had risen to hear him crow.”
Wish I could write like that.
