A Quote by George Eliot on age, circumstances, decisions, and satisfaction

How could a man be satisfied with a decision between such alternatives and under such circumstances No more than he can be satisfied with his hat, which he's chosen from among such shapes as the resources of the age offer him. . . .

George Eliot (1819 - 1880)
