A charming ebook full of Jane Austen’s wittiest and wisest thoughts and aphorisms.
As any schoolgirl knows, ‘It is a truth universally acnowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.’ (Pride and Prejudice). However, in a letter to a friend, Jane Austen issues a word of warning: ‘Anything is to be preferred or endured rather than marrying without affection’. For Jane Austen’s views on marriage, the family, money and society are not only ascerbic but both profound and subtle.
Dip into it or read THE WIT AND WISDOM OF JANE AUSTEN from cover to cover- and enjoy!
