"And to this purpose"

"If people like to read their books, it is all very well, but to be at so much trouble in filling great volumes, which, as I used to think, nobody would willingly ever look into, to be labouring only for the torment of little boys and girls, always struck me as a hard fate; and though I know it is all very right and necessary, I have often wondered at the person's courage that could sit down on purpose to do it." (In other words: rambling analyses, opinions, ideas, views, and comments from an English major, Essay/paper-writing enthusiastic, Austen-loving Master Librarian on, well, Jane Austen...and a whole lot of other things, too.)

"Celebrated Passages are Quoted"

Heidi's favorite quotes

"What is it really like to be engaged?" asked Anne curiously. "Well, that all depends on who you're engaged to," answered Diana, with that maddening air of superior wisdom always assumed by those who are engaged over those who are not."— L.M. Montgomery

Hill. Lair. Ee. Us.

Enchanted Serenity discovered something wonderful on bookshop's livejournal, and shared it on her blog. Thus, I was able to discover this gem for all Austen lovers. (Wait for a couple of them--it takes some time for them to work completely.) Clever. Enjoyable. And out and out uproarious.

A little taste to whet your appetite:

I had no idea there were so many different emoticons. A little behind over here.

I didn't know there were that many either. I was rather impressed. But it is through Yahoo, so I don't think the various symbols would work on just anything with emoticons.

I remember when I would chat with my little brother, he started using some that I hadn't a clue about. That's when I began to feel behind. I may have done grad school at a computer-savvy school and had a few computer-focused classes, but they didn't really teach anything on Emoticons. :-)
