Писательница, классик английской и мировой литературы

  • ⋅There are people, who the more you do for them, the less they will do for themselves. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid. /Jane Austen

  • ⋅Friendship is certainly the finest balm for the pangs of disappointed love. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅There is safety in reserve, but no attraction. One cannot love a reserved person. /Jane Austen

  • ⋅A large income is the best recipe for happiness I ever heard of. /Jane Austen

  • ⋅Life seems but a quick succession of busy nothings. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅A woman, especially if she has the misfortune of knowing anything, should conceal it as well as she can. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅It is not time or opportunity that is to determine intimacy;-- it is disposition alone. Seven years would be insufficient to make some people acquainted with each other, and seven days are more than enough for others. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅Next to being married, a girl likes to be crossed in love a little now and then. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅She was a woman of mean understanding, little information, and uncertain temper. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅It is indolence... Indolence and love of ease; a want of all laudable ambition, of taste for good company, or of inclination to take the trouble of being agreeable, which make men clergymen. A clergyman has nothing to do but be slovenly and selfish; read the newspaper, watch the weather, and quarrel with his wife. His curate does all the work and the business of his own life is to dine. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅Those who do not complain are never pitied. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅It will, I believe, be everywhere found, that as the clergy are, or are not what they ought to be, so are the rest of the nation. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅It may be possible to do without dancing entirely. Instances have been known of young people passing many, many months successively without being at any ball of any description, and no material injury accrue either to body or mind; but when a beginning is made -- when the felicities of rapid motion have once been, though slightly, felt -- it must be a very heavy set that does not ask for more. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅An engaged woman is always more agreeable than a disengaged. She is satisfied with herself. Her cares are over, and she feels that she may exert all her powers of pleasing without suspicion. All is safe with a lady engaged; no harm can be done. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅Although our productions have afforded more extensive and unaffected pleasure than those of any other literary corporation in the world, no species of composition has been so much decried. And what are you reading, Miss -- -? Oh! it is only a novel! replies the young lady; while she lays down her book with affected indifference, or momentary shame. It is only Cecilia, or Camilla, or Belinda ; or, in short, only some work in which the greatest powers of the mind are displayed, in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature, the happiest delineation of its varieties, the liveliest effusions of wit and humor, are conveyed to the world in the best chosen language. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅It is always incomprehensible to a man that a woman should ever refuse an offer of marriage. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅Human nature is so well disposed towards those who are in interesting situations, that a young person, who either marries or dies, is sure of being kindly spoken of. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance. /Jane Austen

  • ⋅One does not love a place the less for having suffered in it, unless it has been all suffering, nothing but suffering. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅Every man is surrounded by a neighborhood of voluntary spies. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn? /Jane Austen
  • ⋅One half of the world cannot understand the pleasures of the other. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅To sit in the shade on a fine day, and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment. /Jane Austen
  • ⋅Surprises are foolish things. The pleasure is not enhanced and the inconvenience is often considerable. /Jane Austen

Women think that all men are equal, and this is their strength, men think all women are different - it destroys them.
