“She had been forced into prudence in her youth, she learned romance as she grew older: the natural sequel to an unnatural beginning” Chapter 4 – Persuasion
“I hate to hear you talking so like a fine gentleman, and as if women were all fine ladies, instead of rational creatures. We none of us expect to be in smooth waters all our days” – Mrs. Croft, Chapter 8 – Persuasion
“There could have been no two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in union, no countenances so beloved. Now they were as strangers; nay, worse than strangers, for they could never become acquainted. It was a perpetual estrangement. ”
“All the privilege I claim for my own sex (it is not a very enviable one; you need not covet it ), is that of loving longest, when existence or when hope is gone.” Chapter 23 – Persuasion
“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.” – Captain Wentworth
