He seemed to weave, like the spider, from pure impulse, without reflection" from Silas Marner The Weaver of Raveloe by George Elliot (1861)

This quote has echoed throught my life since I first read it for O'level English Literature 44 years ago. At the time I had no idea that I to would become a weaver. 

Weaving has been my headspace through the pandemic. I now completely understand the quote comparing Silas Marner to a spider weaving his webb with a consuming passion.

Silas Marner was the last weaver of Raveloe.
