“It isn't what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.”
-- Jane Austen
"The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid."
She has read an abridged Jane Eyer -- not Jane Austin but in that genre---and it is one of her favorite stories, but now unto unabridged and tales of love and woe..
"There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart."
There is Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abby, Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Emma, Mansfield Park (a favorite)... So many stories!
