Thoughts and life quote by george Eliot

It is an uneasy lot at best, to be what we call highly
taught and yet not to enjoy: to be present at this great
spectacle of life and never to be liberated from a small
hungry shivering self--never to be fully possessed by
the glory we behold, never to have our consciousness
rapturously transformed into the vividness of a thought,
the ardor of a passion, the energy of an action, but
always to be scholarly and uninspired, ambitious and
timid, scrupulous and dim-sighted.
george Eliot,Middlemarch
