A faithful, but unheralded, life

Via Mere Orthodoxy, quoting from the ending of a book I probably should have read, but haven't. I really like this:
“... [F]or the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.” George Eliot’s Middlemarch
