    Jane Austen Quote # 2

    Vanity & Pride... "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

    Jane Austen Is Great

     It all started with that '90s version of Pride and Prejudice made for BBC, with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. After seeing it on tv, I started reading her novels and have been hooked ever since I was 14. Pride and Prejudice is my first Austen love, but my personal...

    Jane Austen Quote # 1

    Jane Austen is one of my favorite authors. Anything the woman wrote or spoke, I love! “The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love.”

    Austen Not Austin

    I had joined an Austen group and wondered why there was no activity. Then I noticed that the group name was misspelled. Perhaps there is a Jane Austin. Stephen F. Austin's cousin maybe? Careless group names are irritating, no?

    She Is Not a Writer of Love Stories...

    Period dramas have hijacked her as being the ultimate romantic novelist, yet it is not that which her true genius lies, it is her observation of the society in which she lived,  her wit and humour which often is underplayed. She ends each 'love story' with the wedding and...

    OK, so you've finally read all six of Jane Austen's immortal novels. Now what? Well, you could always read them again. They're well worth it. However, if you enjoy Regency romances and are looking for well written stories that aren't just lousy Austen rip-offs, I highly...

    Persuasion

    "There could have been no two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in unison." Jane Austen is by far the most brilliant romance and story teller of her and perhaps any time in history. The romance that she inter twines into these stories is remarkable. I have...

    Love.

    jane austen is an absolutely brilliant author. her plots are complex, her characters are memorable, and she's delightfully quotable. her intelligence, wit, and unique outlook on life shine through her books. my favourites are pride and prejudice, and mansfield park.

    Favourite Jane Austen
