Дина Мария Мьюлок — британская писательница и поэтесса. Родилась в Сток-он-Тренте, выросла в Стаффордшире.

Склонности к писательству имела с детства и в 1845 году, после смерти матери, решила зарабатывать этим на жизнь, переехав в Лондон около 1846 года. Начала литературную деятельность с рассказов для детей и проповедей.

Её романы признавались талантливо рисующими характеры и нравы современного ей общества; отличительная их черта — большая простота и отсутствие погони за сенсационным. Наиболее популярными были следующие её произведения: "Olive", "John Halifax", "Christian's mistake", "A life for a Life".

В 1864 году вышла замуж за Джорджа Крейка, партнёра издателя. В 1869 году удочерила девочку, своих детей не имела. Умерла в деревне Шортлендс в графстве Кент в возрасте 61 года от сердечной недостаточности за месяц до намечавшейся свадьбы приёмной дочери.

Цитаты Мьюлок, Дина Мария

„No virtue ever was founded on a lie.“

—  Dinah Craik
Context: No virtue ever was founded on a lie. The truth, then, at all risks and costs — the truth from the beginning. Make a clean breast to whomsoever you need to make it, and then — face the world. Ch 11

„O infinitely human, yet divine!“

—  Dinah Craik
Context: O infinitely human, yet divine! Half clinging childlike to the mother found, Yet half repelling — as the soft eyes say, "How is it that ye sought me? Wist ye not That I must be about my Father's business?"

„When faith and hope fail, as they do sometimes, we must try charity, which is love in action.“

—  Dinah Craik
Context: When faith and hope fail, as they do sometimes, we must try charity, which is love in action. We must speculate no more on our duty, but simply do it. When we have done it, however blindly, perhaps Heaven will show us why. Christian's Mistake (1865). p. 64

„Happiness is not an end — it is only a means, and adjunct, a consequence.“

—  Dinah Craik
Context: Happiness is not an end — it is only a means, and adjunct, a consequence. The Omnipotent Himself could never be supposed by any, save those who out of their own human selfishness construct the attributes of Divinity, to be absorbed throughout eternity in the contemplation of His own ineffable bliss, were it not identical with His ineffable goodness and love. Ch. 10

„Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.“

—  Dinah Craik
Context: Thus ended our little talk: yet it left a pleasant impression. True, the subject was strange enough; my sisters might have been shocked at it; and at my freedom in asking and giving opinions. But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. Somebody must have done a good deal of the winnowing business this afternoon; for in the course of it I gave him as much nonsense as any reasonable man could stand... A part of this passage appeared in The Best Loved Poems of the American People (1936) with the title "Friendship":

„Meek — as the meek that shall inherit earth,
Pure — as the pure in heart that shall see God.“

—  Dinah Craik
Context: This, this is Thou. No idle painter's dream Of aureoled, imaginary Christ, Laden with attributes that make not God; But Jesus, son of Mary; lowly, wise, Obedient, subject unto parents, mild, Meek — as the meek that shall inherit earth, Pure — as the pure in heart that shall see God.

„The irrevocable Hand
That opes the year's fair gate, doth ope and shut
The portals of our earthly destinies;
We walk through blindfold, and the noiseless doors
Close after us, for ever.“

—  Dinah Craik
Context: p>The irrevocable Hand That opes the year's fair gate, doth ope and shut The portals of our earthly destinies; We walk through blindfold, and the noiseless doors Close after us, for ever.Pause, my soul, On these strange words — for ever — whose large sound Breaks flood-like, drowning all the petty noise Our human moans make on the shores of Time. O Thou that openest, and no man shuts; That shut'st, and no man opens — Thee we wait!</p "April", in Poems (1859)

„Wist ye not
That I must be about my Father's business?“

—  Dinah Craik
Context: O infinitely human, yet divine! Half clinging childlike to the mother found, Yet half repelling — as the soft eyes say, "How is it that ye sought me? Wist ye not That I must be about my Father's business?"

„Let every one of us cultivate, in every word that issues from our mouth, absolute truth.“

—  Dinah Craik
Context: Let every one of us cultivate, in every word that issues from our mouth, absolute truth. I say cultivate, because to very few people — as may be noticed of most young children — does truth, this rigid, literal veracity, come by nature. To many, even who love it and prize it dearly in others, it comes only after the self-control, watchfulness, and bitter experience of years. Ch. 8

„O Thou that openest, and no man shuts;
That shut'st, and no man opens — Thee we wait!“

—  Dinah Craik
Context: p>The irrevocable Hand That opes the year's fair gate, doth ope and shut The portals of our earthly destinies; We walk through blindfold, and the noiseless doors Close after us, for ever.Pause, my soul, On these strange words — for ever — whose large sound Breaks flood-like, drowning all the petty noise Our human moans make on the shores of Time. O Thou that openest, and no man shuts; That shut'st, and no man opens — Thee we wait!</p "April", in Poems (1859)

„And all day long, so close and near,
As in a mystic dream I hear
Their gentle accents kind and dear —
The old familiar voices.“

—  Dinah Craik
Context: And all day long, so close and near, As in a mystic dream I hear Their gentle accents kind and dear — The old familiar voices. They have no sound that I can reach — But silence sweeter is than speech; "Magnus and Morna", in Thirty Years, Poems New and Old (1880)

„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
Context: 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 "Magnus and Morna", in Thirty Years, Poems New and Old (1880)

„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
Context: 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

„Sweet April-time — O cruel April-time!“

—  Dinah Craik
Context: Sweet April-time — O cruel April-time! Year after year returning, with a brow Of promise, and red lips with longing paled, And backward-hidden hands that clutch the joys Of vanished springs, like flowers. "April", in Poems (1859)

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

—  Dinah Craik
Context: 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. Ch. 8

„Do your neighbour good by all means in your power, moral as well as physical — by kindness, by patience, by unflinching resistance against every outward evil — by the silent preaching of your own contrary life.“

—  Dinah Craik
Context: Do your neighbour good by all means in your power, moral as well as physical — by kindness, by patience, by unflinching resistance against every outward evil — by the silent preaching of your own contrary life. But if the only good you can do him is by talking at him, or about him — nay, even to him, if it be in a self-satisfied, super-virtuous style — such as I earnestly hope the present writer is not doing — you had much better leave him alone. Ch. 8
