"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

Look at What I Learned to Do!

I've just learned a nifty thing I can do when embedding a YouTube video: I can start you right at the spot that I want you to see, instead of making you watch the few minutes that are all right, but not what I want you to see right then.

And I just had to try it out!

So I thought I would link you to my absolutely favorite line out of all 3 seasons of my recent Period Drama discovery and hence love.

I had to put the quote before it, too, so you could get it all in context. But my favorite line belongs to (one of my favorite characters) Robert Timmins (he of North & South fame if you've seen that movie).

Oh, so very, very, very true!!!!

P.S. If you keep watching the video, you can see my favorite suitor of Laura Timmons--Fisher Bloom. I believe I shall always say it with a bit of an accent. :-)
