"Jane Austen Quotes"


+ Why not seize the pleasure at once? How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, foolish preparation?

+ Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised, or a little mistaken; but where, as in this case, though the conduct is mistaken, the feelings are not, it may not be very material.

+ Nothing is more deceitful than the appearance of humility. It is often only carelessness of opinion, and sometimes an indirect boast.

+ Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.

+ I could not sit seriously down to write a serious romance under any other motive than to save my life; and if it were indispensable for me to keep it up and never relax into laughing at myself or at other people, I am sure I should be hung before I had finished the first chapter.

+ Human nature is so well disposed towards those who are in interesting situations, that a young person, who either marries or dies, is sure to be kindly spoken of.

+ There are people who the more you do for them, the less they will do for themselves.

+ It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

+ I don't want people to be very agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them a great deal.


+ A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony, in a moment.

+ The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel must be intolerably stupid.

+ I do not know whether it ought to be so, but certainly silly things do cease to be silly if they are done by sensible people in an impudent way. Wickedness is always wickedness, but folly is not always folly.
