George Eliot was the pen name for Mary Ann Evans who was born 22nd November, 1819. She had been the subeditor at The Westminster Review for as long as three years. She met George Henry Lewes, a philosopher in 1851 and Lewes, in spite of being already married, spent the next twenty years of his life with Mary Ann Evans. One of the finest George Eliot books includes the Silas Marner. Another important work of hers was Mill on the Floss. George Eliot quotes are beautiful and inspiring at the very same time.
"I like not only to be loved, but to be told that I am loved."
"The important work of moving the world forward does not wait to be done by perfect men."
"It is never too late to be what you might have been."
"It is never too late to be what you might have been"
Eliot married John Cross in 1880 which courted controversy once again. John Cross was younger to her by twenty hears and this time, she changed her name once more to Mary Anne Cross. Now that she married legally, she was congratulated by her brother who had frowned upon her choice of living with Lewes. Eliot died at the age of 61 in 1880 due to throat infection along with her long standing kidney problems.
