“You pierce my soul, I am half agony half hope.”
On this day Dec. 16th in 1775 the brilliant
Jane Austen was born. I am a huge fan, and have read every novel (I think) she has written.
Jane Austen was an amazing English writer born at Steventon rectory to a substantial gentry family. She had only 1 sister, and 6 brothers. Both her and her sister never married and both almost died from Typhus.
Jane Austen was said to be very fond of dancing. This of course makes us Kindred Spirits. 🙂 One of my favorite Jane Austen quotes is:
“To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love”
(Pride and Prejudice)
My personal favorite Jane Austen novel is
Pride and Prejudice
(although Sense and Sensibility is one of
my favorite movies…)
Here is a great list of things you quite possibly never knew about Pride and Prejudice:
