Austen Animates

“There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart.” Jane Austen

Today, December 16, is the divine Jane Austen’s birthday. She was born in 1775. Her most famous book, the wonderful Pride and Prejudice, has sold more than 20 million copies since it was first published in 1813. A gathering of her wit and wisdom to inspire us

“We have all a better guide in ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be.”

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

“Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story. Educations has been theirs in so much higher a degree; the pen has been in their hands. I will not allow books to prove anything.”

“Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised, or a little mistaken.”

“They are much to be pitied who have not been given a taste for nature early in life.”

“Oh! Do not attack me with your watch. A watch is always too fast or too slow. I cannot be dictated to by a watch.”

“What wild imaginations one forms when dear self is concerned! How sure to be mistaken!”

“There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.”

“What is right cannot be done too soon.”

“Nobody minds having what is too good for them.”

“An artist cannot do anything slovenly.”

And now, entertained and emboldened, let’s all write on!
