Favorite Tilney Quotes

1. "Her passion for ancient edifices was next in degree to her passion for Henry Tilney-- and castles and abbeys made usually the charm of those reveries which his image did not fill."
Author: Jane Austen
2. "Portanto - disse a Srta. Tilney -, a senhorita crê que os historiadores não são felizes ao deixar sua imaginação voar. Eles demonstram possuí-la, mas não conseguem despertar o interesse. Eu gosto de História, e não me importo de aceitar o que é falso junto com o que é verdadeiro. Para descrever os fatos principais, eles buscam informações em registros e em outros livros que são tão confiáveis, creio eu, quanto qualquer coisa que não se passe diante de nossos próprios olhos. E quanto aos pequenos adornos aos quais se refere, são apenas adornos, e gosto deles como tal. Se um discurso for bem escrito, eu o lerei com prazer, não importa quem seja o autor. E leio com mais prazer ainda se tiverem sido produzidos pelo Sr. Hume e pelo Sr. Robertson do que se fossem as palavras genuínas de Caractacus, Júlio Agrícola ou ALfredo, o Grande."
Author: Jane Austen
3. "You have been abroad then?" said Henry, a little surprised."Oh! No, I only mean what I have read about. It always puts me in mind of the country that Emily and her father traveled through, in The Mysteries of Udolpho. But you never read novels, I dare say?""Why not?""Because they are not clever enough for you — gentlemen read better books.""The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid. I have read all Mrs. Radcliffe's works, and most of them with great pleasure. The Mysteries of Udolpho, when I had once begun it, I could not lay down again; I remember finishing it in two days — my hair standing on end the whole time.""Yes," added Miss Tilney, "and I remember that you undertook to read it aloud to me, and that when I was called away for only five minutes to answer a note, instead of waiting for me, you took the volume into the Hermitage Walk, and I was obliged to stay till you had finished it."
Author: Jane Austen
4. "But indeed I did not wish you a pleasant walk; I never thought of such a thing; but I begged Mr. Thorpe so earnestly to stop; I called out to him as soon as ever I saw you; now, Mrs. Allen, did not—Oh! You were not there; but indeed I did; and, if Mr. Thorpe would only have stopped, I would have jumped out and run after you."Is there a Henry in the world who could be insensible to such a declaration? Henry Tilney at least was not."
Author: Jane Austen
5. "Catherine [...] enjoyed her usual happiness with Henry Tilney, listening with sparkling eyes to everything he said; and, in finding him irresistible, becoming so herself."
Author: Jane Austen
6. "And now, Henry," said Miss Tilney, "that you have made us understand each other, you may as well make Miss Morland understand yourself—unless you mean to have her think you intolerably rude to your sister, and a great brute in your opinion of women in general. Miss Morland is not used to your odd ways.""I shall be most happy to make her better acquainted with them.""No doubt; but that is no explanation of the present.""What am I to do?""You know what you ought to do. Clear your character handsomely before her. Tell her that you think very highly of the understanding of women.""Miss Morland, I think very highly of the understanding of all the women in the world—especially of those—whoever they may be—with whom I happen to be in company.""That is not enough. Be more serious.""Miss Morland, no one can think more highly of the understanding of women than I do. In my opinion, nature has given them so much that they never find it necessary to use more than half."
Author: Jane Austen
7. "...I would have jumped out and run after you.'Is there a Henry in the world who could be insensible to such a declaration? Henry Tilney at least was not. With a yet sweeter smile, he said every thing that need be said..."
