Strona 50 - It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.
Strona 46 - Bow wow strain I can do myself like any now going but the exquisite touch which renders ordinary common-place things and characters interesting from the truth of the description and the sentiment is denied to me.
Strona 53 - I hope I never ridicule what is wise or good. Follies and nonsense, whims and inconsistencies do divert me, I own, and I laugh at them whenever I can.
Strona 344 - Lyme ; and, above all, Pinny, with its green chasms between romantic rocks, where the scattered forest trees and orchards of luxuriant growth declare that many a generation must have passed away since the first partial falling of the cliff prepared the ground for such a state, where a scene so wonderful and so lovely is exhibited, as may more than equal any of the resembling scenes of the far-famed Isle of Wight : — these places must be visited, and visited again, to make the worth of Lyme understood.
Strona 331 - Her eye half met Captain Wentworth's; a bow, a curtsey passed; she heard his voice - he talked to Mary, said all that was right; said something to the Miss Musgroves, enough to mark an easy footing: the room seemed full - full of persons and voices - but a few minutes ended it.
Strona 138 - And what are you reading, Miss — ?" "Oh, it is only a novel," replies the young lady while she lays down her book with affected indifference or momentary shame. "It is only Cecilia or Camilla or Belinda...

Strona 278 - That will just do for me, you know. I shall be sure to say three dull things as soon as ever I open my mouth, sha'n't I ? (looking round with the most good-humoured dependence on every body's assent.) Do not you all think I shall?" Emma could not resist. " Ah ! ma'am, but there may be a difficulty. Pardon me, but you will be limited as to the number, — only three at once.
Strona 140 - I will read you their names directly; here they are, in my pocket-book: Castle of Wolfenbach, Clermont, Mysterious Warnings, Necromancer of the Black Forest, Midnight Bell, Orphan of the Rhine, and Horrid Mysteries. Those will last us some time.
Strona 138 - Sterne, are eulogized by a thousand pens, - there seems almost a general wish of decrying the capacity and undervaluing the labour of the novelist, and of slighting the performances which have only genius, wit, and taste to recommend them. "I am no novel reader - I seldom look into novels - Do not imagine that I often read novels - It is really very well for a novel.
