It’s Day Fourteen, and Time for Some Words from Jane Austen!
Posted by Elisa Beatty Jan 23 2011, 3:21 am
And now for a few Jane Austen quotes that might give you a little romance-writing boost for the day:
“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
“We have all a better guide in ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be.”
“All the privilege I claim for my own sex . . . is that of loving longest, when existence or when hope is gone.”
“Next to being married, a girl likes to be crossed in love a little now and then.”
“She had been forced into prudence in her youth, she learned romance as she grew older.”
“There is safety in reserve, but no attraction. One cannot love a reserved person.”
And for those of you sick of the snow, remember the alternative:
“What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.”
Have a great day of writing–and many thanks again to Kim Law for providing writing sprints this weekend!!
