A Compendium of Jane Austen’s Wit & Wisdom

by Jane Austen
A thematically organized wit-and-wisdom-style packaging of quotes and excerpts from the works of Jane Austen.
Jane Austen is one of the most eminently quotable authors in all of English letters and her books abound with delightful observations that are memorable for their sparkling wit and humor. This compilation collects several hundred quotes and extracts from Jane Austen’s works, organized thematically and illustrated with spot art. Examples include: Marriage: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” (Pride and Prejudice); Happiness: “I wish as well as every body else to be perfectly happy; but, like every body else, it must be in my own way.” (Sense and Sensibility); Personality: “I always deserve the best treatment, because I never put up with any other.” (Emma).

Jane Austen (1775–1817) is regarded as one of the greatest writers of the Regency era and her six published novels are masterpieces of literary wit and sophistication.
