The words of genius have a wider meaning than the thought that prompted them.”   —   George Eliot

(This is actually just part of a line from her first novel:  Adam Bede.  The full line is:  Beauty has an expression beyond and far above the one woman’s soul that it clothes, as the words of genius have a wider meaning than the thought that prompted them.”  I find her way of writing difficult to read.  My Homer Simpson brain needs plain talk.  Be better than yer uncle.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I threw in this picture of a cat named George Eliot, because my buddy, Carlo, is looking to place a new stray he has kind of adopted.  4 is enough for him, and this latest one makes five.  It’s a male, with a dark tabby top and white lower face, bib and front and back legs.  Jersey City, NJ  –  if anyone is interested.   —   YUR

    I was curious when you said ‘she’ and looked her up. I read some of her quotes and thought them simple to understand. Don’t get mad. You are much more understanding of all the other quoters than I am and I am new to this. Maybe her quotes are more to the female mind. Okay?

    I think the female authors of this time tended to write more poetically than their male counterparts. I often struggle with poetry. Having someone say: *What does it mean to you?* always leaves me cold. Sometimes I just need a road map.

    Add me to those who had no idea that this was a pseudonym for a lady author. Neat!

    I hope the kitty can find a good home – that’s a very attractive cat. I have four myself.

    Hi, Art. This cat picture was provide by Zemanta. But, I saw the cat on my buddy’s facebook page and it’s a good looking cat. Just try to imagine him from my description.
