Famous quotes containing the words family and/or austen:

    For every nineteenth-century middle-class family that protected its wife and child within the family circle, there was an Irish or a German girl scrubbing floors in that home, a Welsh boy mining coal to keep the home-baked goodies warm, a black girl doing the family laundry, a black mother and child picking cotton to be made into clothes for the family, and a Jewish or an Italian daughter in a sweatshop making “ladies” dresses or artificial flowers for the family to purchase.
    Stephanie Coontz (20th century)

    Lady Sondes’ match surprises, but does not offend me; had her
    first marriage been of affection, or had their been a grown-up
    daughter, I should not have forgiven her; but I consider
    everybody as having a right to marry once in their lives for
    love, if they can.
    —Jane Austen (1775–1817)
