Middlemarch Quotes

While browsing Pinterest for photos for my Middlemarch (1994) review I found these lovely quotes from George Eliot's Middlemarch book. Several of these were quite thought provoking so I wanted to share them with you.

Which quote is your favorite?
Have you ever read Middlemarch?

I love these quotes! My favourite is the second one--- it's so true! I once met someone who cared not in the least for Pride and Prejudice 1995 and I was like WHATTTTTTT. I just cannot understand some people- we will never know. :-)
I have once started to read Middlemarch, but that was two years ago and I was 13 and it was too hard for me. I might pick it up again in the future!
Thanks also for your review, I enjoyed reading it!

Wow! All five are so great. I really like the first and fourth ones, but if I had to choose, my favorites would probably be the "keen vision and feel of all ordinary life" and the "mistakes we mortals make".

I knew I needed to read this, but it has now jumped to the top of my list! :-)

I especially like the first quote--so much truth there!

Thank you for sharing these. I think I'll get out my copy and read it again. Though I also have it as an audiobook...Can you tell it's one of my favorite novels?

Those are such beautiful quotes! My favorites are the first and fourth ... I actually had never heard of Middlemarch until just this week, and now I'm curious to learn more about it! :-)

Thanks for sharing these! They definitely made me think!

Love in Christ,
