Becoming Jane : the wit and wisdom of Jane Austen
Austen, Jane
Adult Nonfiction PR4032 .N49 2007

Comments  Summary

Summary: Inspired by Becoming Jane, the romantic film that could only make you want to know more about Jane Austen, here is a delightful collection of some of her most famous and quotable quotes -- pearls of wit and wisdom on topics like family, the sexes, friends, money, marriage, and of course love -- that are as true today as they were in Austens time. Jane Austen on Marriage: "My being charming, Harriet, is not quite enough to induce me to marry; I must find other people charming -- one othe person at least." --Emma Woodhouse to Harriet Smith, in Emma "I am of a cautious temper, and unwilling to risk my happiness in a hurry. Nobody can think more highly of the matrimonial state than myself. I consider the blessing of a wife as most justly described in those discreet lines of the poet, Heavens last best gift." --Henry Crawford to his sisters in Mansfield Park "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." --From Pride and Prejudice
