Emma

By Jane Austen QUOTATION: Human nature is so well disposed towards those who are in interesting situations, that a young person, who either marries or dies, is sure of being kindly spoken of.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. Emma, ch. 22 (1816).

QUOTATION: With men he can be rational and unaffected, but when he has ladies to please, every feature works.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. Mr. John Knightley, in Emma, ch. 13 (1816).

QUOTATION: Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised, or a little mistaken.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. The narrator, in Emma, ch. 49 (1816).

QUOTATION: Goldsmith tells us, that when lovely woman stoops to folly, she has nothing to do but to die; and when she stoops to be disagreeable, it is equally to be recommended as a clearer of ill-fame.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. The narrator, in Emma, ch. 45 (1816).

QUOTATION: It was a sweet view—sweet to the eye and the mind. British verdure, British culture, British comfort, seen under a sun bright, without being oppressive.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. The narrator, in Emma, ch. 42 (1816).

QUOTATION: It may be possible to do without dancing entirely. Instances have been known of young people passing many, many months successively, without being at any ball of any description, and no material injury accrue either to body or mind; Mbut when a beginning is made—when felicities of rapid motion have once been, though slightly, felt—it must be a very heavy set that does not ask for more.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. The narrator, in Emma, ch. 28 (1816).
