If you can keep the simple, homely virtue Of walking right with God - - then have no fear That anything in all the world can hurt you - - And - - which is more - - you'll be a Woman, dear. ~McEvoy

Words of Wisdom from Pride and Prejudice

"I know your disposition, Lizzy. I know that you could be neither happy or respectable, unless you truly esteemed your husband; unless you looked up to him as a superior. Your lively talents would place you in the greatest danger in an unequal marriage. You could scarcely escape discredit and misery. My child, let me not have the grief of seeing you unable to respect your partner in life."
~Mr. Bennet to his daughter in Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
