"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

Darcy List

This came up in my Facebook memories. And I realized it was the perfect post to be on this blog. So I am reposting.

March 24, 2015
Sorry, my preferences and I don't agree with this line up. My order: Firth in Bridget doesn't even make the list because I don't like that movie. 9. Rintoul. 8. Henderson (only seen it once). 7. Olivier. 6. Rhys. 5. MacFadyen (he wasn't given much to work with) 4. Firth. 3. Seale (LDS version). 2. Gordh (he was a very close 1st) 1. Cowan.
It seems I have a thing for seeing my Darcy's in modern settings. :-)
P.S. And for me, JJ as Henry Tilney will always beat out Darcy.

"You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."

Mary Mitchell De Bastos Henry Tilney will always beat out Darcy!
Sara Lyn Busch Hm... I'm not even sure how I would rank them. Tilney all the way!
