Emma

By Jane Austen QUOTATION: Respect for right conduct is felt by every body.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. Mr. Knightley in Emma, ch. 18 (1816).

QUOTATION: One has not great hopes from Birmingham. I always say there is something direful in the sound.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. Mrs. Elton, in Emma, ch. 36 (1816).

QUOTATION: Give a girl an education and introduce her properly into the world, and ten to one but she has the means of settling well, without further expense to anybody.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. Mrs. Norris in Mansfield Park, ch. 1 (1814).

QUOTATION: What did she say?—Just what she ought, of course. A lady always does.—She said enough to show there need not be despair—and to invite him to say more himself.

QUOTATION: The post-office had a great charm at one period of our lives. When you have lived to my age, you will begin to think letters are never worth going through the rain for.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. Mr. John Knightley, in Emma, ch. 34 (1816).

QUOTATION: A man would always wish to give a woman a better home than the one he takes her from; and he who can do it, where there is no doubt of her regard, must, I think, be the happiest of mortals.
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. Mr. Knightley in Emma, ch. 49 (1816).

QUOTATION: The ladies here probably exchanged looks which meant, “Men never know when things are dirty or not;” and the gentlemen perhaps thought each to himself, “Women will have their little nonsense and needless cares.”
ATTRIBUTION: Jane Austen (1775–1817), British novelist. The narrator, in Emma, ch. 29 (1816).
