    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

    There's Still Life After Finishing Jane Austen's Seven Published Novels

    In the fall of 2009 I reacquainted myself with the works of Jane Austen. What with real life it took a while to complete the seven complete novels that were in the volume I purchased then. But finish them I did. Now what? Oh, I'm sure I will reread them but in the meantime...

    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...

    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...

    Favourite Jane Austen

     My favourite for many years was Pride and Prejudice. I think I originally found Persuasion annoying because I saw a movie version before reading the book and I really did not like the Anne character too much in the movie version. Now, having read Persuasion, it is my...

    Jane Austen Really Understood What Good Relationships Are About

    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.

    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?

    At the end of the day, in a relationship a girl needs security - money has a major role in giving security. I don't see any problem with Jane Austen in ending her stories as she did. She has represented every girl, in every possible way - starting from being ignorant (Northanger...

    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...
