If a man means to be hard, let him keep in his saddle and speak from that height, above the level of pleading eyes, and with the command of a distant horizon.

What's up with the TFD Daemon/algorithm? The overabundance of George Eliot quotes is becoming tedious. Mix it up!

which also makes it swift for the descent of the whip on the poor soul.

I agree, lets mix things up with quotes from some of the great modern thinkers.

If a man must look down on someone else, while speaking from the height of his horse, let him make sure that the height didn’t get to his head.

speaking from the saddle

The word cheval means horse in French
and the word chevalier means knight.

Perhaps if you wish to be hard,
then make sure you have earned the right to be so, as a chevalier - knight.

In other words, make sure you have become something first
and then think about being hard.

Right?

A stretch, perhaps, but a very interesting breakdown nonetheless!
