Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice

Jane Austen

I love to read Jane Austen simply because she has such wonderful, quotable retorts.  Sometimes my mind gets a little distracted by the lengthiness of regency novels but the romance and properness of the times is great fun to participate in. I really should read more Jane Austen and more romance. There is so much to be learned from the wise observations of Austen. After writing this short review (many months after reading the book) I am rededicating myself to reading more books like Pride and Prejudice.

“A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.”

― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”

― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

“Angry people are not always wise.”

― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

 “Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”

― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

 “I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine.”

― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

 “I must learn to be content with being happier than I deserve.”

― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
