“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 (17751817)
“Come children, let us shut up the box and the puppets, for our play is played out.”
