“She opened her curtains, and looked out towards the bit of road that lay in view, [..] Far off in the bending sky was the pearly light;
and she felt the largeness of the world and the manifold wakings of men to labor and endurance. She was a part of that involuntary,
palpitating life, and could neither look out on it from her luxurious shelter as a mere spectator, nor hide her eyes in selfish complaining.”

George Eliot, Middlemarch, 1871-72
