Famous quotes containing the word austen:

    —Jane Austen (1775–1817)

    You mistake me, my dear. I have a high respect for your nerves. They are my old friends. I have heard you mention them with consideration these twenty years at least.
    —Jane Austen (1775–1817)

    The post-office had a great charm at one period of our lives. When you have lived to my age, you will begin to think letters are never worth going through the rain for.
    —Jane Austen (1775–1817)
