Delicious Autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”   —   George Eliot

(Good ol’ George!  Not exactly fair of face.  Oh, is this a form of body shaming???  And, what if it is?  Get over it!  Anybody who loves Autumn – like me – is alright in my book.  But hey, she was actually a Monday’s child!  So anyway, I love her quote.  But, I’m not sure that it would be possible to seek successive autumns, by flying about the world.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It will never rain roses:  when we want to have more roses we must plant more trees.”   —   George Eliot

(I think she really meant bushes, because roses don’t grow on trees, but I get it.  Let’s plant more trees anyways!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

More helpful than all wisdom is one draft of human pity that will not forsake us.”   —   George Eliot

(I’ve seen this one with draft spelt draught, and also with the word simple preceding the word human.  Sympathy and empathy are more necessary than many people think.  If you have them, now, try not to lose them.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

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

We mortals, men and women, devour many a disappointment between breakfast and dinnertime.”   —   George Eliot

(I know this is just a line, spoken by a character in one of her books, but it’s kind of a negative half-truth.  We also experience a number of wins throughout the day as well.  Some days, the minuses outweigh the pluses, but other days the opposite is also true.  Life might not be a perfect balance, but it’s always best to accentuate the positives.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The finest language is mostly made up of simple unimposing words.”   —   George Eliot

(There are times to be more showy, flowery and poetic, but I usually try to keep things simple.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

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

Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another.”   —   George Eliot

(As lovely a sentiment as I’ve ever heard.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Our deeds determine us as much as we determine our deeds.”   —   George Eliot

What do we live for if not to make life less difficult for each other?”   — George Eliot

(I’m going to go out on a limb and surmise that Ms. Evans would’ve  made a lousy member of today’s Republican/Conservative party.  And, an even worse corporate executive!) —   YUR
