Some Jane Austen Quotes

Believe it or not, and I know mom and Rach that you probably won´t believe it, but I found a book that I enjoyed almost as much as Pride and Prejudice. It is of course another Austen novel, Northanger Abbey. Here are some of my favorite quotes from it:

¨Not keep a journal! How are you absent cousins to understand the tenour of your life in Bath without one? How are the civilities and compliments of every day to be related as they ought to be unless noted down every evening in a journal...¨

¨Friendship is certainly the finest balm for the pains of disappointed love¨.

and there are more, but I will not bore you with the fancies of a girl... How was that, do I almost sound Austenic?
