Jane Austen Quote of the Day

[Fanny:] "Too quiet for you, I believe."

[Mary] "I should have thought so theoretically myself, but," and her eyes brightened as she spoke, "take it all and all, I never spent so happy a summer. But then," with a more thoughtful air and lowered voice, "there is no saying what it may lead to."
