A Quote by George Eliot on death, feeling, heart, lies, silence, stupidity, and vision

If we had a keen vision and feeling it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of the roar which lies on the other side of silence. As it is, the quickest of us walk about well wadded with stupidity.

George Eliot (1819 - 1880)
