PinkMonkey® Quotations on . . .
Pride and Prejudice
QUOTATION: You mistake me, my dear. I have a high respect for your nerves.
They are my old friends. I have heard you mention them with consideration
these twenty years at least.
QUOTATION: I must confess that I think her as delightful a creature as
QUOTATION: Without thinking highly either of men or of matrimony, marriage
had always been her object; it was the only honourable provision for well-educated
young women of small for tune, and however uncertain of giving happiness,
must be their pleasantest preservative from want.
QUOTATION: Unhappy as the event must be ... we may draw from it this
useful lesson: that loss of virtue in a female is irretrievable; that
one false step involves her in endless ruin; that her reputation is no
less brittle than it is beautiful; and that she cannot be too much guarded
in her behaviour towards the undeserving of the other sex.
QUOTATION: Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance. If the
dispositions of the parties are ever so well known to each other, or ever
so similar before-hand, it does not advance their felicity in the least.
They always continue to grow sufficiently unlike afterwards to have their
share of vexation; and it is better to know as little as possible of the
defects of the person with whom you are to pass your life.
