Quote of the Week- Pride and Prejudice

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

However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered as the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters. 
                              
So begins the infamous work by Jane Austen and so begins my (hopefully) weekly feature where I share some of my favorite quotes from some of my favorite books and authors.

Share some of yours in the comments below...

Enjoy!

  1. This is a neat idea! I wish I could remember one quote, from one of the thousands of books I've read. But alas, at 3:11am, it's not going to happen.

  2. I have this goofy habit of taking notes when I'm reading (even for fun). I write down page #s of quotes I really like, words I don't know and need to look up, and even mistakes I catch. Weird, huh?
