Book Quote Challenge – Day one

Many thanks to Patricia Ann Schaack Garcia for inviting me to participate in the Book Quote Challenge.

 

It is a great honor for me to follow in her foot steps. And that won’t be an easy task. But I’ll do my best.

 

I have to present three quotes per day by an author  of my choice for three consecutive days.  My quotes for today have been picked from Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice”.

**

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”  

**

“Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”  

**

“I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine.”  

**

I’m sure, I don’t need to explain why they impressed me so much or who said what… These quotes are legendary – and they’re kind of burned into my memory.

 

Thank you Jane Austen for this wonderful story!

    • Wow… this gives me kind of a feeling of loneliness… and no-fish-sadness. I’m a little lost – but I try to get rid of the lonely-feeling… Thanks very much for dropping by and leaving your comment, Carl. You really gave me something to think about.
