Works of George Eliot

"Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms. George Eliot." 
I couldn't agree more ~ Quote from  'Mr. Gilfil's Love Story,' Scenes of Clerical Life, 1857

George Eliot wrote the most beautiful opening sentence I have read in any novel in English-

"With a single drop of ink for a mirror, the Egyptian sorcerer undertakes to reveal to any chance comer far-reaching visions of the past."

The opening lines in Chapter 1 of "Adam Bede".

I couldn't agree more. What beautifully bound books.

I agree, as well! They take us through our darkest days and ask so little of us. Hugs! Bonnie

I second that sentiment.
