All I need to know I learned from Jane Austen...

My Mom found this gem and picked it up for me. It contains such witticisms as:

"The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid."
- Henry Tilney in Northanger Abbey


"If things are going untowardly one month, they are sure to mend the next."
- Mr. Weston in Emma

There's just nothing like Jane.

No, there's not! I just finished reading Sense and Sensibility last night and before that I was reading Pride and Prejudice (for the second and third times). I don't know what I'll move on to now, as I don't actually own any other Jane Austen books besides those two. Sigh.
