Noble Nature

“The presence of a noble nature, generous in its wishes, ardent in its charity, changes the lights for us: we begin to see things again in their larger, quieter masses, and to believe that we too can be seen and judged in the wholeness of our character.” ― George Eliot, Middlemarch

There is little in life more powerful, encouraging and compelling than being in the presence of someone possessed of a noble nature. The noble nature, like water, seeks its own level. It draws forth that which is consistent with it while repelling that which is not. When in the presence of a noble-natured man or woman, you are either lifted up by virtue of your agreement, or cast away with that which should rightly be driven out of you.

  1. Thank you for your fitting and timely words. As I remember a personal mentor of mine was born on this day that epitomized the noble nature. His bright example has been very meaningful to my heart and has served as an inspiration to be a light for my world. It is good to consider and appreciate such matters together.

    I agree noble nature is the most important character trait. By its very nature it is dependable and trustworthy. It stands the tests of time, stress and capricious longing. Nobility is a natural quality of a heart that’s made available first to our Creator. I guess you could say it is a God given quality.
