Jane Austen Quotes That Will Re-Establish Your Faith In Love And Marriage!

Article By: Hadia Hassan


I still remember reading my first ever copy of Pride and Prejudice back in 6th grade. Of falling in love with madam Austen’s beautiful and sensible words on love. Her books gave the twelve-year-old me perspective on the society. It made me understand the finer aspects of womanhood and its judgmental ways. Of life and its harsh realities. If anything her books taught me that sometimes love is not enough to keep two people together. Factors like society, poverty and women and their endless gossip can draw a wedge between two lovers forever.

As I grew older I read more and more of her work and each of her character taught me something meaningful. I learned how to always be myself and never be embarrassed of my roots from Elizabeth Bennet. Mr. Darcy taught me how a person’s shyness can sometimes be mistaken for vanity and reluctance to interact with people. Emma taught me to not go around matchmaking and to let things take their natural course when it comes to love. Marianne Dashwood taught us to never be naïve in life and trust the first eligible bachelor who life sends our way just like her sister Elinor taught us to cover up for our little siblings and to retain our composure and not hide our feelings from the person we love.

Mansfield Park taught us how poverty can destroy a marriage sometimes and Fanny Price in particular taught us that to not let people walk all over us because we belong to the lower class.

Jane Austen’s books have everything a young lady needs to know before entering womanhood. All of Miss Austen’s heroes were true gentlemen and girls to date drool over the men of substance she created decades ago. The words with which they confessed their love to the women they loved is absolutely beautiful!
