A Quote by George Eliot on habits, life, love, motives, needs, partnership, soul, and women

A supreme love, a motive that gives a sublime rhythm to a woman's life, and exalts habit into partnership with the soul's highest needs, is not to be had where and how she wills.

George Eliot (1819 - 1880)
