Book Giveaway: Fashion in the Time of Jane Austen

Jane Austen's World is hosting a book give away of Fashion in the Time of Jane Austen by Sarah Jane Downing.
Please click here to enter! I am collecting a wonderful number of Jane Austen quotes, which I shall share with readers over the months. It is fun to read which quotes are meaningful to readers.

The winner will be chosen on April 19th.

My favorite Jane Austen quote is from Persuasion: " A lady without a family was the very best preserver of furniture in the world."

Anne Elliot in Persuasion: "If I may, so long as the woman you love lives, and lives for you, all the privilege I claim for my own sex, and it is not a very enviable one - you need not covet it, is that of loving longest when all hope is gone".

Breaks your heart, doesn't it?

This is from the film, don't know if it is the same in the book.

A friend of mine sent this to me prior to my trip to Ireland and it is so appropriate for me!
Jane Austen wrote, “if adventure will not befall a young lady in her own village she must seek them aboard.”
I love to travel and leave this on my memo board at work whenever I'm ready to take off for an adventure.

One of my favorite lines is Mr. Knightley's when he says, "If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more."
That says volumes.

Anything from Pride and Prejudice would win for me hands down.

Every line in Pride and Prejudice is my favorite!

wow that book looks awesome O.O .
Anyways, one of my favourite Jane Austen quotes, in terms of humour and all that, is:
"Mrs Jennings was a widow with ample jointure. She had only two daughters, both of whom she had lived to see respectably married, and she had now therefore nothing to do but to marry all the rest of the world."
- Sense and Sensibility
