Sense and Sensibility Quotes

Here are some quotes from Sense and Sensibility! This concludes my Sense and Sensibility focus; unfortunately I will not be able to start on my next Jane Austen book right away. Hope you enjoy them!



“Mama, the more I know of the world, the more I am convinced I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!” ~Marianne

“Is there any felicity in the world superior to this?” ~Marianne

“I confess that while I am at Barton Park, I never think of tame and quiet children with any abhorrence.” ~Elinor

“Esteem him! Like him! Cold-hearted Elinor! Oh! Worse than cold-hearted! Ashamed of being otherwise. Use those words again, and I will leave the room this moment.” ~Marianne

“Well, said I, all I can say is, if this be true, he has used a young lady of my acquaintance abominably ill, and I wish with all my soul his wife my plague his heart out.” ~Mrs. Jennings

“…Marianne, who had the knack of finding her way in every house to the library, however it might be avoided by the family in general, soon procured herself a book.”

“I love to be reminded of the past, Edward - whether it be melancholy or gay, I love to recall it - and you will never offend me by talking of former times.” ~Marianne

“Elinor agreed to it all, for she did not think he deserved the compliment of a rational opposition.” (Speaking of Robert Ferrars)

From movie (Which are probably not as funny if you haven't seen it...)

“It’s going to rain.”
“It is not going to rain.”

~Margaret and Marianne

“I like Mrs. Jennings. She talks about things. We never talk about things.” ~Margaret

“I will think of something to tempt her. Does she care for olives?” ~Mrs. Jennings

“Do you love him?”
“I do not attempt to deny that I think very highly of him…that I - greatly - esteem him. I like him.”
“Esteem him? Like him?! Use those insipid words again and I shall leave the room this instant!”

~Marianne and Elinor
