So true, Harper Lee. Human perfectability, says Austen. We so often have blinders on to what is truly before us!!!!!
More Austen quotatistic advice. This is to the men…when she speaks of you like this, you have her in your pocket. This book is agony in itself for you the reader. Why?…
Because from the very start you feel the pain of both lovers torn apart by listening to others (WHO WERE WRONG, by the way) getting in the way of true love. Maybe it was destiny to be apart for so long (for these two) but you as a reader will side with them till the last page.
“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
― Jane Austen,
Ode to love advice…well, really just a reminder that love is activated in mysterious ways but it happens nonetheless.
“I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.”
― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
Great monologue, Mr. Darcy. And sound advice you send to all the men out there…be sure to be “civil” to your woman before wooing her!!!
Good advice for the dating world of today even. Who wants to date a man with no ambition, no money to court you, and no future? Hmm, said no one.
“It is a truth universally that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.” —Pride and Prejudice
