    • QUOTES (13)

      • Elinor: (About Marianne and Willoughby) I do expect, and hope, to hear of their engagement very soon.
        Brandon: That being the case, to your sister I wish all imaginable happiness, and to Willoughby, that he may endeavour to deserve her.

      • Colonel Brandon: What are you intentions towards Miss Marianne Dashwood?
        Willoughby: I beg your pardon.
        Colonel Brandon: I believe you heard me.

      • Marianne: I only wish you could be as happy as I am.
        Elinor: I am perfectly content.
        Marianne: You are not, you know you're not. Why doesn't Edward come?
        Elinor: I suppose because he has other obligations. Or perhaps he simply prefers to be elsewhere.
        Marianne: How can you be so calm about it Elinor?
        Elinor: Would it serve any good for me to be agitated? Should I lie sobbing and calling his name? I think it's best not to hope fervently for something that may never happen.
        Marianne: Then let me hope for you.

      • Elinor: Colonel Brandon was disappointed not to see you.
        Marianne: He did see me.
        Elinor: For about five seconds. He has a great regard for you Marianne.
        Marianne: And I for him, but he has one great defect: he's not Willoughby.

      • Mrs Dashwood: (After Willoughby has told Marianne he is leaving) If I were still mistress of Norland, my girls would never be treated like this!

      • Marianne: So how are you going to distinguish yourself?
        Edward: I shan't attempt it at all. I have no wish to be distinguished.

      • Willoughby: Let me ask you this, what are your intentions with regard to Marianne?
        Brandon: Whatever they are, they are entirely honourable, can you say the same thing?
        Willoughby: I cannot be blamed if Marianne prefers my company to yours. We are closer in age, in temperament, in taste, in short, in everything. I commiserate with you, but there it is.

      • Marianne: Ugh, there's nothing to wear! Why are we so poor?

      • Marianne: Elinor, you have no soul.
        Elinor: Perhaps not, but I flatter myself I do have a little sense.

      • Marianne: I sometimes wonder what it can be like to be you.
        Elinor: Very dull, no doubt.

      • Marianne: In any case, what have wealth or grandeur to do with happiness?
        Elinor: Wealth has a good deal to with it I think.
        Marianne: Elinor, for shame, are we not happy? Have we not been happy here? And we as poor as the gypsies.
        Elinor: Yes, and I think we might have been even happier if we had a little more money.

      • Edward: So, how does Devonshire suit? Plenty of pleasant walks I should think. And do you have good company, are the Middleton's pleasant people?
        Marianne: No, not at all, we couldn't be more unfortunately situated.
        Elinor: Marianne, how can you say that?

      • Marianne: I'm so happy, Elinor.
        Elinor: Yes, I think everybody is aware of that.
        Marianne: I believe you disapprove of me. But how would you have me behave? Oh, I have been open and sincere where I ought to have been reserved. I suppose I should have sat quietly and talked of nothing but the weather and roads?
