FAVOURITE PRIDE AND PREJUDICE QUOTES
Adding the "u" to favorite because that's how Elizabeth Bennet would want me to spell it.
- •"What are men to rocks and mountains?"This is my bio and my phone background...
- •"I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library."
- •"There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense."
- •"Angry people are not always wise."
- •"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."
- •"Elizabeth's spirit's soon rising to playfulness again, she wanted Mr. Darcy to account for his having ever fallen in love with her. 'How could you begin?' said she. 'I can comprehend your going on charmingly, when you had once made a beginning; but what could set you off in the first place?' 'I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, orthe words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun."
- •"We are each of an unsocial, taciturn disposition, unwilling to speak, unless we expect to say something that will amaze the whole room, and be handed down to posterity with all the eclat of a proverb."
- •"Elizabeth had never been more at a loss to make her feelings appear what they were not. It was necessary to laugh, when she would rather have cried."
- •"I certainly have not the talent which some people possess, of conversing easily with those I have never seen before."
- •"In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will no longer be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."
- •"Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and I will never see you again if you do."Suggested by @laneeeee_sue
