Tuesday’s Piece

“Religious doctrines had taken no hold on Hetty’s mind; she was one of those numerous people who have had godfathers and godmothers, learned their catechisms, been confirmed and gone to church every Sunday, and yet, for any practical result of strength in life, or trust in death, have never appreciated a single Christian idea or Christian feeling.”

(George Eliot on Hetty Sorrel in the novel Adam Bede)
