No mean brick shall be a specimen of the building of my palace  (Elizabeth Gaskell Quotes) As far as one knows of heroines from history.

My precept is, do something, my sister, do good if you can; but at any rate, do something  (Elizabeth Gaskell Quotes) Margaret found that the indifferent, careless conversations of one who, however kind, was not too warm and anxious a sympathizer, did her good  (Elizabeth Gaskell Quotes) Yes! He knew how she would love. He had not loved her without gaining that instinctive knowledge of what capabilities were in her. Her soul would walk in glorious sunlight if any man was worthy, by his power of loving, to win back her love  (Elizabeth Gaskell Quotes) It had been a royal time of luxury to him, with all its stings and contumelies, compared to the poverty that crept round and clipped the anticipation of the future down to sordid fact, and life without an atmosphere of either hope or fear  (Elizabeth Gaskell Quotes) I’m not saying she was very silly, but one of us was very silly and it wasn’t me  (Elizabeth Gaskell Quotes) Really it is very wholesome exercise, this trying to make one’s words represent one’s thoughts, instead of merely looking to their effect on others  (Elizabeth Gaskell Quotes) My heart burnt within me with indignation and grief; we could think of nothing else. All night long we had only snatches of sleep, waking up perpetually to the sense of a great shock and grief. Every one is feeling the same. I never knew so universal a feeling  (Elizabeth Gaskell Quotes) I daresay it seems foolish; perhaps all our earthly trials will appear foolish to us after a while; perhaps they seem so now to angels. But we are ourselves, you know, and this is now, not some time to come, a long, long way off. And we are not angels, to be comforted by seeing the ends for which everything is sent  (Elizabeth Gaskell Quotes) We do not look for reason for logic in the passionate entreaties of those who are sick unto death; we are stung with the recollection of a thousand slighted opportunities of fulfilling the wishes of those who will soon pass away from among us: and do they ask us for the future happiness of our lives, we lay it at their feet, and will it away from us  (Elizabeth Gaskell Quotes) He could remember all about it now; the pitiful figure he must have cut; the absurd way in which he had gone and done the very thing he had so often agreed with himself in thinking would be the most foolish thing in the world; and had met with exactly the consequences which, in these wise moods, he had always foretold were certain to follow, if he ever did make such a fool of himself  (Elizabeth Gaskell Quotes) Margaret liked this smile; it was the first thing she had admired in this new friend of her father’s; and the opposition of character, shown in all these details of appearance she had just been noticing, seemed to explain the attraction they evidently felt towards each other  (Elizabeth Gaskell Quotes) She thought in would be awkward for both to be brought into conscious collision; and fancied that, from her being on a low seat at first, and now standing behind her father, he had overlooked her in his haste. As if he did not feel the consciousness of her presence all over, though his eyes had never rested on her!  (Elizabeth Gaskell Quotes) The question always is, has everything been done to make the sufferings of these exceptions as small as possible?
