If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?

According to Austen:
If a man's name starts with a w, it is likely he is a scoundrel who will ruin your reputation.
If his name starts with a B, he's likely going to marry your sister.
If his name starts with a C, he's your slimy and somewhat dumb cousin.
If his name starts with D, he's rich. Marry him now!

Darcy is so funny, like, he's honestly such a funny character. So socially awkward it's a scandal wherever he goes. Me too Darcy, me too

Jane Austen: as a house, Barton cottage was okay even if a bit small. But as a cottage, it SUCKED. No honeysuckle, the roof wasn't thatched, AND THE SHUTTERS WEREN'T GREEN!!!!
Me: Jane, calm down. This is a house YOU created.

Mrs Grant: Henry, since Maria is engaged, why do you not try to court Julia Bertram? She is such a beautiful and sofisticated girl, just as lovely as her sister!
Henry Crawford: I would not dream of contradict you, dear sister, but I find Maria more of my liking especially because she is engaged.
Mrs Grant: *half joking, half reprimanding* Henry!
Mary Crawford: *in the same tone, but more theatrical* such a hard-working guy, our Henry-going for the more difficult choice instead of the easier one!
Henry Crawford: *laughing* the more difficult one? not at all, I am going for the funnier one! Engaged women are the best! I can flirt with her-
Mary Crawford: *teasingly* could-
Henry Crawford: *shaking his finger* I can flirt with her all day long and if someone says anything she just has to look outraged and say something like...
Henry Crawford: *falsetto* 'Why would I need to flirt with the amazingly witty, fascinating and good-looking Mr Crawford? I am engaged!' And everyone is happy! It is incredible how secure women feel of their position in life once they are engaged! They make everything more interesting!

I wonder if part of the reason why Mr. Elliot pursued Anne instead of her sister Elizabeth was because he thought Anne would be easier to control.

Responding to the recent dramatic shifts in the ways in which we’re engaging with our physical environments, Printed Matter is proud to present I Was In The Middle Before I Knew That I Had Begun, a new curated series of Fundraising Editions by artists Moyra Davey, Coco Fusco, David Horvitz, Joseph Kosuth, and Louise Lawler. The title is drawn from a line by Jane Austen which appears in Kosuth’s print, and alludes to how each of the artworks poetically reflects the precarity of our collective experience, while embedded with a sense of movement and futurity brought on by the possibility of revolution. These newly produced editions were generously contributed by each of the artists in support of Printed Matter and its continued mission as a vital platform for artists’ book publishing.

and maybe you and I are just terrible people, because that would explain all this loudness in our souls and how we would let the world burn into ashes as long as it meant that we could stay next to each other for another second, and maybe love makes us insane but I'd lose my sanity again and again if it meant that I could find you in the end

"In marrying your nephew, I should not consider myself as quitting that sphere. He is a gentleman; I am gentleman's daughter; so far we are equal."
