George Eliot: Every Penny a Purpose

Posted by admin on Saturday, September 17, 2016

George Eliot Money Quote saying our priorities change as needs and desires evolve, especially when there’s no goal to focus our energy toward with love. George Eliot said:

Mysterious money had stood to him as the symbol of earthly good, and the immediate object of toil. He had seemed to love it little in the years when every penny had its purpose for him; for he loved the purpose then. But now, when all purpose was gone, that habit of looking towards the money and grasping it with a sense of fulfilled effort made a loam that was deep enough for the seeds of desire
