George Eliot

I like not only to be loved, but also to be told that I am loved. I am not sure that you are of the same mind. But the realm of silence is large enough beyond the grave. This is the world of light and speech, and I shall take leave to tell you that you are very dear. — George Eliot, from a Letter to Georgiana Burne-Jones, wife of the artist Edward Burne-Jones (1875)

  1. I love this comment. To me, it shows that, in the end, life is still beautiful and we need to take the opportunity to cherish one another. Because you don’t know when you might die, or when your loved ones might die.
