Favorite Jane Austen quotes

I was over at the Love Inspired Authors blog on Thursday talking about how I picked out my favorite passages from Jane Austen's books to put on my website, including my favorite one from Persuasion on my About page. Here it is:

“I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you.”

Excerpt from Persuasion by Jane Austen

Isn't that just swoon-worthy? When you visit my Camille website, be sure to check all the pages for all the different Jane Austen passages.

How about you guys? Any favorite Jane Austen quotes?


  1. But do you have any favorite quotes from the Jane Austen Editions Adapted for the Male Reader:

    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies


    Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters?

    1. Hahaha that's a good description, "for the Male Reader"! I did read zombies but since I am not a huge zombie fan, was not adequately impressed.
