Quotes

Rev. Camden Farebrother: [describing Dorothea] Miss Brooke's yearning for self-sacrifice and her hunger for martyrdom mask a secret desire to bully the lesss virtuous and impose her will on others - for their own good, of course. It's education that does it, my boy. Education and too much church. What will happen when all women become like her?
Dr. Tertius Lydgate: [sighs] Men will become better too, I suppose. I hope I'm dead by then, though.
