Zitate Dinah Maria Mulock

„Down in the deep, up in the sky,
I see them always, far or nigh,
And I shall see them till I die —“

—  Dinah Craik

"Magnus and Morna", in Thirty Years, Poems New and Old (1880)
Kontext: p>Down in the deep, up in the sky,
I see them always, far or nigh,
And I shall see them till I die —The old familiar faces.</p

„Love, the master, goes in and out
Of his goodly chambers with song and shout,
Just as he please — just as he please.“

—  Dinah Craik

"Plighted"
Poems (1866)
Kontext: Mine to the core of the heart, my beauty!
Mine, all mine, and for love, not duty:
Love given willingly, full and free,
Love for love's sake — as mine to thee.
Duty's a slave that keeps the keys,
But Love, the master, goes in and out
Of his goodly chambers with song and shout,
Just as he please — just as he please.

„Nevertheless, taking life as a whole, believing that it consists not in what we have, but in our power of enjoying the same“

—  Dinah Craik

A Woman's Thoughts About Women (1858)
Kontext: Nevertheless, taking life as a whole, believing that it consists not in what we have, but in our power of enjoying the same; that there are in it things nobler and dearer than ease, plenty, or freedom from care — nay, even than existence itself; surely it is not Quixotism, but common-sense and Christianity, to protest that love is better than outside show, labour than indolence, virtue than mere respectability

„I fear, the inevitable conclusion we must all come to is, that in the world happiness is quite indefinable. We can no more grasp it than we can grasp the sun in the sky or the moon in the water.“

—  Dinah Craik

Quelle: A Woman's Thoughts About Women (1858), Ch. 10
Kontext: I fear, the inevitable conclusion we must all come to is, that in the world happiness is quite indefinable. We can no more grasp it than we can grasp the sun in the sky or the moon in the water. We can feel it interpenetrating our whole being with warmth and strength; we can see it in a pale reflection shining elsewhere; or in its total absence, we, walking in darkness, learn to appreciate what it is by what it is not.

„Gossip, public, private, social — to fight against it either by word or pen seems, after all, like fighting with shadows.“

—  Dinah Craik

Quelle: A Woman's Thoughts About Women (1858), Ch. 8
Kontext: Gossip, public, private, social — to fight against it either by word or pen seems, after all, like fighting with shadows. Everybody laughs at it, protests against it, blames and despises it; yet everybody does it, or at least encourages others in it: quite innocently, unconsciously, in such a small, harmless fashion — yet we do it. We must talk about something, and it is not all of us who can find a rational topic of conversation, or discuss it when found.

„One cannot make oneself, but one can sometimes help a little in the making of somebody else. It is well.“

—  Dinah Craik, buch The Little Lame Prince and his Travelling Cloak

Ch 10
The Little Lame Prince and his Travelling Cloak (1875)

„The only way to make people good, is to make them happy.“

—  Dinah Craik

Ch 11
A Woman's Thoughts About Women (1858)

„There never was night that had no morn.“

—  Dinah Craik

"The Golden Gate", Mulock's Poems, New and Old (1888), this has sometimes been misquoted as There was never a night that had no morn.
