“I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives.”  #JaneAusten in Persuasion #classicromancebookquotes

(Because, who doesn’t like the master of disguise)

(Because we all want love in some form or fashion and do not want anyone to stand in our way)

(Because we all have something worth fighting for)

(Because we all have the ability to be vile and presumptuous and seemingly unaware if we want to actually admit it to ourselves)

(Because wow, there is power in numbers)

(Because sometimes the side story romance is better than the main one and well, Miss Austen, I wish now I could ask to have it written for me.)
