Plain Jane

mollands.netPlain Jane:

Eleanor went to her room where she was free to think and be wretched

-Jane Austen in Sense and Sensibility

Isn’t that just entirely necessary sometimes? To be perfectly free to think and be wretched? Of course, then you always must get over it and trundle on…

Plain Jane

jane austen 3-Plain Jane: “I am excessively fond of a cottage; there is always so much comfort, so much elegance about them. And I protest, if I had any money to spare, I should buy a little land and build one myself, within a short distance of London, where I might drive myself down at any time, and collect a few friends about me and be happy. I advise everybody who is going to build, to build a cottage.”

-Jane Austen in Sense and Sensibility

Happy Friday everyone! Even if you don’t have a cottage to trundle off to this weekend, I hope you have a tremendous one just the same.

-Jane Austen in Sense and Sensibility

Keep Calm and…Be Mistress of Yourself is Jane’s version of the “Carry On” quote. It really is so very difficult to be calm today…because, it’s FRIDAY! Happy weekend everyone.
