PinkMonkey® Quotations on . . .
Pride and Prejudice
QUOTATION: A person who can write a long letter with ease, cannot write
QUOTATION: A ladys imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration
to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.
QUOTATION: It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man
in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.
QUOTATION: 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.
QUOTATION: One cannot be always laughing at a man without now and then
stumbling on something witty.
QUOTATION: For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours,
and laugh at them in our turn?
QUOTATION: Nothing is more deceitful than the appearance of humility.
It is often only carelessness of opinion, and sometimes an indirect boast.
QUOTATION: Undoubtedly ... there is a meanness in all the arts which
ladies sometimes condescend to employ for captivation. What bears affinity
to cunning is despicable.
