435 Quotes    4.3 

Pride and Prejudice has remained one of the most popular novels in the English language, since its immediate success in 1813. Jane Austen called this brilliant work "her own dear child" and her vivacious heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, "as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print." A splendid perf... ormance of civilized sparring is the romantic clash between the thought-provoking Elizabeth and her proud beauty, Mr. Darcy. And the radiant wit of Jane Austen glistens as her characters dance a delicate quadrilla of flirtation and intrigue, making this book Regency England's most superb comedy of manners.

Quotes from Pride and Prejudice

For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn?

From the very beginning— from the first moment, I may almost say— of my acquaintance with you, your manners, impressing me with the fullest belief of your arrogance, your conceit, and your selfish disdain of the feelings of others, were such as to form the groundwork of disapprobation on which succeeding events have built so immovable a dislike; and I had not known you a month before I felt that you were the last man in the world whom I could ever be prevailed on to marry.

I am only resolved to act in that manner, which will, in my own opinion, constitute my happiness, without reference to you, or to any person so wholly unconnected with me.

A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
