Quotations : George Eliot

“ It’s never too late to be who you might have been.”

George Eliot

Mary Anne Evans was a Victorian novelist who used the pen name George Eliot. According to Wiki, the masculine name was chosen to partly distance herself from the lady writers of silly novels but it also quietly hid the tricky subject of her marital status.

She lived with the married George Henry Lewes for over 20 years. Mr Lewes apparently had an open marriage; one can imagine how well that played in the Victorian era! Nonetheless, the Evans/Lewes ‘marriage’  was by all accounts a loving and stable relationship.  

After Lewes died, George Eliot later legally married American banker John Cross – a man 20 years her junior. A Victorian Demi Moore?! 🙂

I seem to gravitate towards women who buck the system, don’t I?!

Now from George Eliot to Tom Venuto. Wow! Now that’s a jump! You can’t say my interests are not eclectic!

Tom Venuto, of www.burnthefatblog.com and www.tomvenuto.com fame, writes about his sadness when people think that it is “ too late” for them to do anything about fitness and overweight. You may like to read his 2 latest blog posts dated 25th and 29th June. Don’t be put off by the pictures of his body-builder torso! He is anything but a steroid laden exercise junkie. The man has much to say that  may resonate with you!

Have a great Friday.
