George Eliot Knows What's Up

My two interests in life inexplicably collide!

‘Falsehood is so easy, truth so difficult. The pencil is conscious of a delightful facility in drawing a griffin—the longer the claws, and the larger the wings, the better; but that marvellous facility which we mistook for genius is apt to forsake us when we want to draw a real unexaggerated lion.’
George Eliot, Adam Bede, Ch. 17.

Thanks for the submission, Brian!
