Pride and Prejudice

By Jane Austen QUOTATION: A person who can write a long letter with ease, cannot write ill.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. Miss Bingley, in Pride and Prejudice, ch. 10 (1813).

QUOTATION: A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice, ch. 6 (1813).

QUOTATION: It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. Pride and Prejudice, ch. 1 (1813).

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.
