Happy Birthday, Elizabeth Gaskell, born 29 September 1810, died 12 November 1865
- Sometimes one likes foolish people for their folly, better than wise people for their wisdom.
- People may flatter themselves just as much by thinking that their faults are always present to other people’s minds, as if they believe that the world is always contemplating their individual charms and virtues.
- God has made us so that we must be mutually dependent. We may ignore our own dependence, or refuse to acknowledge that others depend upon us in more respects than the payment of weekly wages; but the thing must be, nevertheless. Neither you nor any other master can help yourselves. The most proudly independent man depends on those around him for their insensible influence on his character - his life.
- Similarity of opinion is not always—I think not often—needed for fullness and perfection of love.
- The future must be met, however stern and iron it be.
Gaskell was a British novelist and short story writer during the Victorian era. Her novels offer a detailed portrait of society and are of interest to social historians as well as lovers of literature.

These are around the corner from the shop I work at, it’s always funny seeing people occasionally trying out the steps in the sidewalk
4. If you could pick one song to describe who you are, what song would it be? (Geez, you had to pick a hard one!) Smash together “The Lady is a Tramp” and “Our Love is Here to Stay” and mix in dashes of a few other things and you might get close, haha. (I will love Ella Fitzgerald forever and ever.)
20. If you were a fictional character who would you be? I think I identify a great deal with Anne Elliot in Jane Austen’s Persuasion, although we’re not exactly alike. She’s such a fascinating character to me—quiet, deeply empathetic, often overlooked and underestimated, and stoic and self-denying when it comes to her own emotions, but underneath everything else, she’s strong as steel.
27. List one of your quirks. I’ve never managed to rid myself of some of my weird childhood habits, which now come across as random acts of compulsion. I still hate stepping on cracks, and tend to count my steps between each one that I cross as I walk. Moreover, when I count my steps, the pitch of my mental voice for the odd or even numbers differs depending on whether the first step leads with my right of left foot. (Odd numbers will be mentally higher pitched if I lead with my right, lower if I lead with my left.)
Ask me things! Questions here.

Last of the doodle prompts from the WoM/TLV round coming a little late, since I couldn’t think of anything for her first prompt and had to ask for a different one :0
