There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.”   —   George Eliot

(Ugh.  Poet talk.  It just doesn’t resonate with me.  Beer, pizza, sports and police procedurals is more my speed.  Okay, I do enjoy museums and the ballet.  And, I occasionally do the wine and cheese thing, and go to see the occasional Broadway show.  But, that’s it.  I don’t do poetry.  You’re on your own with the above.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    And what’s this thing of 19th century female writers naming themselves George? Elliot, as Sand, were both equally talented, sexually independent, and not surprisingly for the era that they were well ahead of, unhappy, according to some accounts. Perhaps that would change your appreciation of that quote, right Uncle? Cheers

    I noticed the name thing too, Wes. I can appreciate the pen-names for the sake of having their art taken seriously. Even if they had lesbian tendencies, or felt they should have been born men, the quote doesn’t really work for me. Poetry, in general, is too interpretive for my tastes.
