I love quotes. Words. Stories confined within a sentence. When I was in college, I wrote my favorites down in a little notebook I carried with me; today, it’s a Word document. Here are a few of my recent favorites (because I’m sure the Internet really wants to know).

“…[she] tried to make peace after the fashion of weak-minded persons, who would cover over the unpleasant sight of a sore, instead of trying to heal it.”

Elizabeth Gaskell

“Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Why is there such a fury against religion now? Because religion is the one reliable force that stands in the way of the power of the strong over the weak. The one reliable force that forms the foundation of the concept of the rule of law.”

Peter Hitchens

“But what we call our despair is often only the painful eagerness of unfed hope.”

George Eliot
