Perfectly Persuasion


I’m rereading Persuasion and this amused me

"…when pain is over, the remembrance of it often becomes a pleasure."

Jane Austen, Persuasion

"She felt that she could so much more depend upon the sincerity of those who sometimes looked or said a careless or a hasty thing, than of those whose presence of mind never varied, whose tongue never slipped."

Jane Austen, Persuasion (1818)


"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. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight and a half years ago. Dare not say that a man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant." [Persuasione by Jane Austen]


If I was wrong in yielding to persuasion once, remember that it was to persuasion exerted on the side of safety, not of risk. When I yielded, I thought it was to duty.

"There could have been no two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in unison, no countenances so beloved. Now they were as strangers; nay, worse than strangers, for they could never become acquainted. It was a perpetual estrangement."

Day 14: Book OTP

Persuasion by Jane Austen

I adore Captain Wentworth and Anne Elliot as a couple — the misunderstanding and heartache on both sides, hiding and revealing the bitterness and anger, and then coming back together at last.

Though it may be cliché, I love the letter he writes her to reveal that he still feels the same for her, and still wants to marry her. It gives me happy shivers to read it.

I don’t think it’s cliche. I think it’s classic :)

"One does not love a place the less for having suffered in it, unless it has been all suffering, nothing but suffering."
