Calleigh's Favourite Jane Austin Quote

My favourite quote out of Jane Austen's books, is probably this one from Emma:

"Mr. Knightley, in fact, was one of the few people who could see faults in Emma Woodhouse, and the only one who ever told her of them."

To me, it's just a perfect picture of my favourite couple's relationship.

Elizabeth's Favorite Jane Austin Quotes of All Time

“Her mind was in a state of flutter and wonder, which made it impossible for her to be collected. She was in a dancing, singing, exclaiming spirits; and till she had moved about and talked to herself, and laughed and reflected, she could be fit for nothing rational.” ~Emma

"Your brother is certainly very much to be pitied at present; but we must not, in our concern for his sufferings undervalue yours… You feel, as you always do, what is most to the credit of the human nature."
~Northanger Abbey~ Henry Tilney
