Jane Austen Quotes Pride and Prejudice, Emma, S&S Poster
Quotes from Emma, Pride and Prejudice, and Sense and Sensibility
Cover quotes include:
I cannot make speeches, Emma...If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more. But you know what I am. You hear nothing but truth from me. I have blamed you, and lectured you, and you have borne it as no other woman in England would have borne it. ~I am excessively diverted. ~ In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you. ~ There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it. ~You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope...I have loved none but you. ~ It isn't what we say or think that defines us, but what we do. ~ For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn? ~ I always deserve the best treatment because I never put up with any other. ~ You are too generous to trifle with me. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes are unchanged; but one word from you will silence me on this subject for ever. ~ An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth. From this day you must be a stranger to one of your parents. Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and I will never see you again if you do. ~She is tolerable, but not handsome enough to tempt me, and I am in no humor at present to give consequence to young ladies who are slighted by other men.
