Favorite Anne Elliot Quotes

1. "Half the sum of attraction, on either side, might have been enough, for he had nothing to do, and she had hardly any body to love." (of Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth, Persuasion)"
Author: Jane Austen
2. "Alcuni anni prima Anne Elliot era stata una fanciulla molto carina, ma la sua giovanile bellezza era presto svanita, e dato che anche al colmo del suo splendore il padre non aveva trovato molto da ammirare (erano così diversi dai suoi i delicati tratti e i miti occhi scuri della figlia), non poteva esserci nulla che potesse suscitare la stima del padre ora che era così pallida e magra. Nona veva mai nutrito molte speranze - ora non ne aveva più nessuna- di poter un giorno o l'altro leggere il nome di lei in qualche pagina del suo amatissimo libro."
Author: Jane Austen
3. "Captain Harvile: Poor Phoebe, she would not have forgotten him so soon. It was not in her nature. Anne Elliot: It would not be in the nature of any woman who truly loved. Captain Harvile: Do you claim that for your sex? Anne Elliot: We do not forget you as soon as you forget us. We cannot help ourselves. We live at home, quiet, confined, and our feelings prey upon us. You always have business of some sort or other to take you back into the world. Captain Harvile: I won't allow it to be any more man's nature than women's to be inconstant or to forget those they love or have loved. I believe the reverse. I believe... Let me just observe that all histories are against you, all stories, prose, and verse. I do not think I ever opened a book in my life which did not have something to say on women's fickleness. Anne Elliot: But they were all written by men."
Author: Jane Austen

One may lack words to express the impact of beauty but no one who has felt it remains untouched. It is renewal, enlargement, intensification. The parks preserve it permanently in the inheritance of the American citizens."
