My family members routinely quote literature to each other, as well as to non-family members (who usually don’t get the connection). Pride and Prejudice is our most-quoted book.
Here are some of our favorites:
1. “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.”
2. “My courage always rises with every attempt to intimidate me.”
3. “For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors and laugh at them in our turn?”
4. “What are men to rocks and mountains?”
5. “I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine.”
6. “I give you leave to like him. You have liked many a stupider person.”
7. “Every savage can dance.”
8. “You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
8. “Nobody can tell what I suffer! But it is always so. Those who do not complain are never pitied.”
9. “We neither of us perform to strangers.”
10. “You find great amusement in occasionally professing opinions which, in fact, are not your own.”
11. “Disguise of every sort is my abhorrence.”
12. “I was in the middle before I knew I had begun.”
13. “My good opinion, once lost, is lost forever.”
14. “She is tolerable, I suppose, but not handsome enough to tempt me.”
15. “In vain, I have struggled. It will not do. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
