Jane Austen / Quotes

by Jane Austen


In nine cases out of ten, a woman had better show more affection than she feels.


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.

Judgment and Judges

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.

Men and Women

With men he can be rational and unaffected, but when he has ladies to please, every feature works.


For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn?


Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery.


There is safety in reserve, but no attraction. One cannot love a reserved person.
