Quote by George Eliot
If you sit down at set of sun And count the acts that you have done, And counting find One self-denying deed, one word That eased the heart of him who heard One glance most kind That fell like sunshine where it went- Then you may count that day well spent.
This quote reminds us to reflect upon our actions and measure the value of our day by the selfless deeds we have performed. It emphasizes the significance of acts of kindness, compassion, and understanding in making a positive impact on others. By bringing joy, comfort, and light into someone's life through our words and actions, we can truly consider our day to be well spent. It encourages us to prioritize empathy and generosity, emphasizing the importance of making a difference in the lives of others.
In ridiculing a pathetic human fallacy, which seeks explanation where none need be sought and which multiplies unnecessary assumptions, one should not mimic primitive ontology in order to challenge it. Better to dispose of the needless assumption altogether. This holds true for everything from Noah's flood to the Holocaust.
