WOW! 92 links last week at our Friday Frivolity Party - you guys are rockstars! For our weekly host theme of favorite quotes this week, I decided to pick some quotes from one of my favorite authors, Jane Austen.
There are plenty of great quips to choose from, but I decided to narrow it down to those that are still relevant today. Unlike the opening line of Pride and Prejudice which is arguably her most famous quote,
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
Though I suppose the producers and fans of The Bachelor still buy into that arcane concept that a woman needs to marry for money and prestige...
Enough feminism for one day, on to the 200 year old insights that are good life lessons today.
