A dear friend sent this to me today. Isn't it lovely?

From George Eliot's Middlemarch.

"Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs."

George Eliot is buried at Highgate Cemetery, the setting for my work in progress, The Architect at Highgate. The DFWWW Conference is coming up next month. I signed up for an agent pitch session. Incentive to finish!
