Quote by George Eliot
The difficult task of knowing another soul is not for young gentlemen whose consciousness is chiefly made up of their own wishes.
This quote highlights the challenge of truly understanding and connecting with another person's emotions and inner self. It suggests that this task cannot be effectively undertaken by young men who are primarily focused on their own desires and perspectives. It implies that genuine understanding requires empathy, self-awareness, and an ability to transcend one's own perspective in order to genuinely connect with and comprehend the complexities of another person's soul.
The whore is despised by the hypocritical world because she has made a realistic assessment of her assets and does not have to rely on fraud to make a living. In an area of human relations where fraud is regular practice between the sexes, her honesty is regarded with a mocking wonder.
Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature ... If the next centennial does not find us a great nation...it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.
