Human feeling is like the mighty rivers that bless the earth: it does not wait for beauty—it flows with resistless force and brings beauty with it.

Chapter XVII
In Which the Story Pauses a Litt


But bless us, things may be lovable that are not altogether
handsome, I hope? I am not at all sure that the majority of the
human race have not been ugly, and even among those “lords of
their kind,” the British, squat figures, ill-shapen nostrils, and
dingy complexions are not startling exceptions. Yet there is a great
deal of family love amongst us. I have a friend or two whose class
of features is such that the Apollo curl on the summit of their
brows would be decidedly trying; yet to my certain knowledge
tender hearts have beaten for them, and their miniatures—
flattering, but still not lovely—are kissed in secret by motherly
lips. I have seen many an excellent matron, who could have never
in her best days have been handsome, and yet she had a packet of
yellow love-letters in a private drawer, and sweet children
showered kisses on her sallow cheeks. And I believe there have

been plenty of young heroes, of middle stature and feeble beards,
who have felt quite sure they could never love anything more
insignificant than a Diana, and yet have found themselves in
middle life happily settled with a wife who waddles. Yes! Thank
God; human feeling is like the mighty rivers that bless the earth: it
does not wait for beauty—it flows with resistless force and brings
beauty with it.

Yeah. Though sometimes the mighty rivers might be so destructive in its resistless force...
