George Elliot Quote


What’s Up With Me?

For once, I may have nothing to say. Life has been going surprisingly okay. The balance between the good and bad is surprisingly 50/50. I’m happy with that. I’ll take it.

I’ve been having a pretty productive week. I was cleaning out my closet today and got quite a bit done. I’m basically cleaning it in three parts and one part is done so far. I also wrote some more poetry for my book. It’s not much but better than nothing. The process is usually that I’ll write a few poems. Out of that, I’ll like about half. And I’ll reread everything a few days later and think like half of the half are worthy of going into the book. Oh, and I found a perfect title for the book too. So, I’m happy with that progress.

I also wanted to say that I love this George Elliot quote. Sometimes I think about my life and feel like I haven’t achieved a lot of stuff I thought I would by this time. But then I read this quote and remember there is no deadline for your dreams. You can achieve them at any age and as long as you’re breathing you still have a fighting chance. Sometimes we need that reminder, you know.

  1. I like this quote. Sometimes we think we’re too old for something but this is a nice reminder that we’re never too old for anything that we want to do.

  2. It’s never too late to respect yourself, to say no thank you, to do what needs to be done instead of buying into liquid lies and gaslighting of modern day. It won’t make you popular I can tell you that, but it’s still worth it. I decided to try it for a change, because why not? I am glad you found a name for your book and wrote some more poetry, it’s always refreshing! This week I want to focus on positive aspects of my job and stay motivated to sub and sub some more, it’s great to be needed.

  3. It is very hard to believe that YOU have nothing to say! Your outspokenness is one of your best qualities ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. We are a most fickle species we are. Dreaming near out of reach goals, only to lean on an exemption post, when weโ€™ve done what we have, but weโ€™ve fallen short of our planed perfectionโ€ฆ. Another post leanerโ€ฆ

  5. Love the quote Pooja reminding us that we can always begin again and we change. Love that you’re 50 / 50 and cleaning out your closet.. this song would be motivating to get a lot done or just dance and forget the whole damn thing.. lol !๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ‘

  6. I second Cindy’s motion! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ The quote removes a few excuses, doesn’t it? It is a good one! Happy cleaning! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  7. sometimes life gets in the way, or perhaps it is we that’s in the way of life… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    a lovely quote, Pooja. Glad your book is coming along… We wait on your share of the title ๐Ÿ˜‹
    ๐Ÿค

  8. Despite not having anything to say, you always do have something to say. Haha. Love that. The quote resonates so well with me. Grateful to where I am today.

    1. Haha, complaint about not having anything to say helps give you something to say ๐Ÿ˜… Glad the quote resonated with you!

  9. The quote is so inspirational and I like how you add: dreams have no deadline. Beautiful โ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ

  10.     Good quote. George Eliot’s real name was Mary Anne Evans. In an article in the Westminster Review (1856) she denounced frivolous novels by women. She lived with a married man with an open marriage and because of her “scandalous life” used the pseudonym George Eliot. [ blog.oup.com/2019/11/eight-things-you-didnt-know-about-george-eliot ]
        So I suppose the meaning of the quote is that if you always wanted to have an affair, just do it and change your name.

      1. Yes, that’s true, but in those days I think they didn’t talk about it by any name. Many knew but didn’t speak of it. The married man couldn’t get a divorce from his official wife, but there was a de facto “divorce”. And then he gave his name to his illegitimate children by others. I think it was after all that, that he took on Mary as his “steady” I guess. But yes, she was fun at parties… the men at the publishers and magazine were kind.

  11. I love this quote, I am 47 and I have just changed career for the 4th time, just because I felt like it! I am always starting new things and doing things that many people would say I am โ€œtoo oldโ€ for, like strongwoman training and having green/pink/orange hair ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Firstly, your hair is literally gorgeous. I love it when people have colourful hair ๐Ÿ˜€
      And good luck with your career change, it’s always fun to try new things!

  12. Hi Pooja,
    I liked the quote. It’s interesting to be the person you were once before.
    Otherwise, most of the times, we try to achieve something which’s out of our reach.
    I’m writing this comment from my home. I have come here (my hometown) to sit in an important exam.
    The exam went good. I tried and did my best.
    Our regular classes for 2nd semester have started. So I’ll be returning back to the hostel and the university, in this weekend.
    From arranging your thoughts to write interesting poems to cleaning your house, you’re doing a lot of things.
    And I like this 90% positive side of yours. Rest 10% with the tag โ€˜badโ€™ might be necessary, to complete one’s personality.
    It shows there’s an enough space where you can improve or grow (or maybe unlearn).
    Take care of yourself.
    Best wishes. Enjoy.๐Ÿ˜

    1. I’m happy to hear that you did your best and the exam went well. Good lick with university when you go back and don’t forget to have fun while studying.

  13. I am doing a lot of multitasking these days, including taking care of two elderly relatives. I patiently listen to their stories of the past. I have learned that no amount of talent or intelligence can be compared to experience.
    Relating this to the quote by George Eliot, their dreams and goals changed due to circumstances. When life brings big or small changes, adapting to the situation and never stopping to learn new skills can help us succeed in life.

    1. Taking care of elders is tough work but they do have a lot of wisdom to impart on us.
      I agree, adapting to life is a good idea since so much is inevitable.

  14. I absolutely agree with you – there is no deadline for your dreams. Thank you for this beautiful and important reminder.

    Canโ€™t wait to read your poetry book! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Thank you so much, it’s probably going to be a while before the book comes out but I so appreciate your support ๐Ÿ˜Š

  15. I like this quote, Pooja, and I also like what you said, “there are no deadlines for your dreams.” I have lived this, changing dreams throughout the decades. So, it’s okay to have more than one, and it’s perfectly fine to change our minds. Enjoy your poetry writing, and I look forward to reading in the future. ๐ŸŒป

    1. Thanks so much ๐Ÿ˜Š I think most of us have moments where our dreams change or evolve and that’s very okay. And sometimes we put our dreams on the back burner and that’s okay too.

  16. Closet cleaning is a battle, I’ve had it in my planner for several months ๐Ÿ˜… I don’t even own that much I just don’t have SPACE!
    I’m glad you’re doing well. Be careful, this positivity thing is becoming a habit!

    1. Omg same ๐Ÿ˜ซ I’ve already given away so much but I still don’t have enough space. It’s so annoying but at least I’m like 1/3rd done. I feel like just starting is the hardest.
      Fingers crossed I’ll never be an optimist ๐Ÿ˜•

  17. That’s such a great quote. It’s never too late, and as you said, ‘there’s no deadlines for your dreams’ that’s so true!!
    Huge respect for you that you started cleaning your closet. For me, it’s the mission impossible, and I don’t even want to try.
    What if the pile of clothes falls over me and I die? I don’t want to die, lol! ๐Ÿ˜‚

    1. Thanks! I’m about 2/3 of the way through so far and it’s been kind of therapeutic letting go of so much old stuff I had hoarded ๐Ÿ˜Š
      Lol, I almost died today because a pile of clothes did fall on me ๐Ÿ˜…

      1. May god give you strength to complete this life-threatening task ๐Ÿ˜‚
        Cleaning and arranging stuff is actually very therapeutic. It’s just that I’m lazy ๐Ÿ˜…

  18. This quote hits very close to home.. Iโ€™m halfway through life, and have accepted that my second half will be led much healthier than my first! โœจ

    1. That’s great, glad your second half is healthier and that you’ve accepted that your first half wasn’t. You still have time to do so much!

  19. I love this quote. As long as you’re still breathing, there’s still time.

    I also love this song and I hadn’t heard it in a long time, so thanks for sharing it and putting it back into my mind. It’s “upbeat melancholy” in the best way.

  20. Oh, don’t be so hard on yourself. You’ve done wonders and you’ve taken the risk and you’ve made choices and you’ve defied customs and try different venues. You’ve done so much in order to make good decisions for yourself. You are a wonderful girl and an amazing person. Yes, we should all continue to explore different options, talk to different people, take calculated risks, and be good to ourselves.

    1. Starting is always the hardest but it’s so worth it because seeing your closet once it’s organised is the best feeling.
