I've been posting quotes from my latest audiobook Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. If you missed one, enjoy them all here and see new ones every weekday at 9pm!
"It is sometimes a disadvantage to be so very guarded. If a woman conceals her affection with the same skill from the object of it she may lose the opportunity of fixing him."
“There is so much of gratitude or vanity in every attachment that it is not safe to leave any to itself. We can all begin freely. A slight preference is natural enough. But there are very few of us who have heart enough to be in love without encouragement.”
“Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance. If the dispositions of the parties are ever so well known to each other or ever so similar beforehand it does not advance their felicity in the least. They always grow sufficiently unlike afterwards to have their share of vexation. And it is better to know as little as possible of the defects of the person with whom you are to pass your life."
“Nothing is more deceitful, said Mr. Darcy, than the appearance of humility. It is often only carelessness of opinion and sometimes an indirect boast.”
