“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.” -Jane Austen

hey I just met you,
thus this is madness.
but here’s my petticoat,
now have my babies.

“You have said quite enough, madam. I perfectly comprehend your feelings, and have now only to be ashamed of what my own have been. Forgive me for having taken up so much of your time, and accept my best wishes for your health and happiness.”

“I am determined that nothing but the deepest love could ever induce me into matrimony.”

Elizabeth Bennet: I am not a great reader and take pleasure in many things.

Miss Bingley: Do you play, Miss Bennet?

Elizabeth Bennet: Aye, but very ill indeed.

Mr. Bingley: All young ladies are accomplished! They sing, they draw, they dance, speak French and German, cover screens, and I know not what!

Mr. Darcy: Not half a dozen would satisfy me as accomplished.

Miss Bingley: Certainly! No woman can be esteemed accomplished, who does not also possess a certain something in her air, in the manner of walking, in the tone of her voice, her address and expressions.

Mr. Darcy: And to this she must yet add something more substantial, in the improvement of her mind by extensive reading.

Elizabeth Bennet: I’m no longer surprised at you knowing only six accomplished women. I wonder at your knowing any.

“But for my own part, if a book is well written, I always find it too short.” 


“If I was wrong in yielding to persuasion once, remember that it was to persuasion exerted on the side of safety, not of risk. When I yielded, I thought it was to duty; but no duty could be called in aid here. In marrying a man indifferent to me, all risk would have been incurred, and all duty violated.” 

Anne Elliott, Persuasion by Jane Austen
