Famous quotes containing the word austen:

    I wish you would not let him plunge into a ôvortex of
    Dissipation.ö I do not object to the Thing, but I cannot bear the
    expression; it is such thorough novel slang—and so old, that I
    dare say Adam met with it in the first novel he opened.
    —Jane Austen (1775–1817)

    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.
    —Jane Austen (1775–1817)

    Woman is fine for her own satisfaction alone. No man will admire her the more, no woman will like her the better for it. Neatness and fashion are enough for the former, and a something of shabbiness or impropriety will be most endearing to the latter.
    —Jane Austen (1775–1817)
