It seems strange to think, that what gives us most hope for the future should be called Dolores, said Margaret.

Elizabeth Gaskell 179 quotes

Only you're right in saying sh...

Only you're right in saying she's too good an opinion of herself to think of you. The saucy jade! I should like to know where she'd find a better!

Elizabeth Gaskell 179 quotes

When prayers were ended, and h...

When prayers were ended, and his Mother had wished him good-night with that long steady look of hers which conveyed no expression of the tenderness that was in her heart, but yet had all the intensity of a blessing.

Elizabeth Gaskell 179 quotes

But the monotonous life led by...

But the monotonous life led by invalids often makes them like children, inasmuch as thy have neither of them any sense of proportion in events, and seem each to believe that the walls and curtains which shut in their world, and shut out everything else, must of necessity be larger than anything hidden beyond.

Elizabeth Gaskell 179 quotes

She lay down and never stirred...

She lay down and never stirred. To move hand or foot, or even so much as one finger, would have been an exertion beyond the powers of either volition or motion. She was so tired, so stunned, that she thought she never slept at all; her feverish thoughts passed and repassed the boundary between sleeping and waking, and kept their own miserable identity.

Elizabeth Gaskell 179 quotes

And so she shuddered away from...

And so she shuddered away from the threat of his enduring love. What did he mean? Had she not the power to daunt him? She would see. It was more daring than became a man to threaten her.

Elizabeth Gaskell 179 quotes

We do not look for reason for ...

We do not look for reason for logic in the passionate entreaties of those who are sick unto death; we are stung with the recollection of a thousand slighted opportunities of fulfilling the wishes of those who will soon pass away from among us: and do they ask us for the future happiness of our lives, we lay it at their feet, and will it away from us.

Elizabeth Gaskell 179 quotes

He could remember all about it...

He could remember all about it now; the pitiful figure he must have cut; the absurd way in which he had gone and done the very thing he had so often agreed with himself in thinking would be the most foolish thing in the world; and had met with exactly the consequences which, in these wise moods, he had always foretold were certain to follow, if he ever did make such a fool of himself.

Oh dear! A drunken infidel weaver! said Mr. Hale to himself.

She had a fierce pleasure in the idea of telling Margaret unwelcome truths, in the shape of performance of duty.

Elizabeth Gaskell 179 quotes

Thinking has, many a time, made me sad, darling; but doing never did in all my life....My precept is, do something, my sister, do good if you can; but at any rate, do something.

Elizabeth Gaskell 179 quotes

Blot your misdeeds out (if you...

Blot your misdeeds out (if you are particularly conscientious), by a good deed, as soon as you can; just as we did a correct sum at school on the slate, where an incorrect one was only half rubbed out. It was better than wetting our sponge with our tears; both less loss of time where tears had to be waited for, and a better effect at last.

Elizabeth Gaskell 179 quotes

She would fain have caught at ...

She would fain have caught at the skirts of that departing time, and prayed it to return, and give her back what she had too little valued while it was yet in her possession. What a vain show Life seemed! How unsubstantial, and flickering, and flitting! It was as if from some aerial belfry, high up above the stir and jar of the earth, there was a bell continually tolling, Ђ?All are shadows!Ђ”all are passing!Ђ”all is past!

A girl in love will do a good deal.

How different men were to women!

Were all men equal to-night, some would get the start by rising an hour earlier to-morrow.

Take care. -If you do not speak- I shall claim you as my own in some presumptuous way. -Send me away at once, if I must go; -Margaret!-

Elizabeth Gaskell 179 quotes

He shook hands with Margaret. ...

He shook hands with Margaret. He knew it was the first time their hands had met, though she was perfectly unconscious of the fact.

Elizabeth Gaskell 179 quotes

Every mile was redolent of associations, which she would not have missed for the world, but each of which made her cry upon 'the days that are no more' with ineffable longing.

Come! Poor little heart! Be cheery and brave. We'll be a great deal to one another, if we are thrown off and left desolate.
