Weekly Lit Quote (1/30/12)

"I take it that 'gentleman' is a term that only describes a person in his relation to others; but when we speak of him as 'a man,' we consider him not merely with regard to his fellow-men, but in relation to himself,--to life--to time--to eternity." 
                                                                                   --Elizabeth Gaskell (North and South)


  1. Love these words of truth from John Thornton. Thankfully, Margaret eventually appreciates their worth.

  2. Supegran! Where have you been?

    Thornton always has a way of knowing what to say. More men need to think like him.
