Quotes from Emma:

Jane Austen says of Mr. Elton, "His gallantry was always on the alert." (Ch. 6, p 43)

Emma persuading Harriet ~better taken out of context than in~ "If she can hesitate as to 'Yes,' she ought to say 'No' directly. It is not a state to be safely entered into with doubtful feelings, with half a heart." (7, 74) There are truth to her words.

"Vanity working on a weak head produces every sort of mischief." ~The Sensible One~ Knightley (8,58)
