Margaret Oliphant Quote
Perhaps, on the whole, embarrassment and perplexity are a kind of natural accompaniment to life and movement; and it is better to be driven out of your senses with thinking which of two things you ought to do than to do nothing whatever, and be utterly uninteresting to all the world.
Miss Marjori-banks. by the author of 'Salem chapel'. (Chronicles of Carlingford). (ed. 1866)
