Author: Jane Austen
This book is about the pursuit of romantic love, without allowing emotion to blind sound judgment and reasoning. It teaches us that we truly can never judge a book by its cover.
“Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her.”
“‘How despicably I have acted!’ She cried. – ‘I, who have prided myself on my discernment! – I, who have valued myself on my abilities!… vanity, not love, has been my folly.’” – Elizabeth Bennet
