George Eliot was the pen name of Mary Anne Evans, a walking, breathing lesson in the power of having a single-minded will. Sure, other women were publishing under their own names by the time she wrote what some have called the greatest English novel, Middlemarch. But, ever a realist, she didn’t want her gender to get in the way of being taken seriously. She'd also been living with a married man for 20 years & didn’t want more trouble...

rest in sorrow; yes on occasion, but not for long or its annoying. minister eachother in all pain..or watch it and pretend its a bear and poke it as hard as you can with whatever object you find with a point? interestingly enough the reason matters. what i am sad about is what will determine my amount of sympathy, even the length of time sympathy will be given. to be one with eachother in silent unspeakable memores at moment of last goodbye; yes.

Oh, my, how perfect and eloquently stated. I think having your identity stolen by deceit odds the worse thing ever next to suicide. I'm so mad that anyone else had the ability to destroy my identity in one act completely out of my control. I'm over it and I purpose and choose to forgive her but it sucks. Lol, so on with my life... *sigh*
