Dear Reader,

Today I present a couple quotes from Persuasion by Jane Austen.



SHE said...

Facts or opinions which are to pass through the hands of so many, to be misconceived by folly in one, and ignorance in another, can hardly have much truth left.
-Anne



HE said...

You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope...
I have loved none but you.
-Captain Wentworth




STAY TUNED...

  1. Anne's quote from Persuasion reminds me of the game 'telephone'. Oh, but I go swooning over Wentworth's quote.

    Yay for talk like Austen day!

  2. There are no snobs, hallways or doorknobs. No one has acerbic wit or has decollete at their neckline. Heck, they don't even have a neckline.

  3. 'What is passable in youth, is detestable in later age' ... [so I've discovered, much to my chagrin] ;)
