George Eliot | Human Beings Must Have Action.
Eliot was correct, but I am not sure how profound it is. One also wonders what “action” includes. Is posting a message on a blog action? Texting someone? Watching TV? We have become the least active generation in history – makes one wonder.
Thanks Dan for your challenging comment. My take is that Eliot meant that people simply cannot leave well enough alone, even in the best of circumstances. There is a restlessness, a bias for change and challenge and action at all times.
Somehow, I don’t think she was thinking of passive recreation or rationalizations for lack of action, hidden in bustle…
