I know you saw this coming, but I find it impossible to pick one favorite quote. =) What is the whole deal with "favorite"? "Favorite" is saying that you prefer one thing over all others, and that's a pretty big deal. So here are a few of my favorites, which, not surprisingly, come from my two favorite authors. They're not very deep or profound, but they mean a lot to me.

"Anything is to be preferred or endured rather than marrying without affection." -Jane Austen
Even though being an old maid is one of my biggest fears, I respect Jane Austen so much for the fact that, in her day and time, she refused to marry someone she didn't love.

"No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally-and often far more-worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond." -C.S. Lewis
For anyone who scoffs at adults reading fairy tales and "children's books."

"To you I shall say, as I have often said before, Do not be in a hurry, the right man will come at last; you will in the course of the next two or three years meet with somebody more generally unexceptionable than anyone you have yet known, who will love you as warmly as possible, and who will so completely attach you that you will feel you never really loved before." -Jane Austen
Jane Austen wrote this to one of her beloved nieces. It has been so encouraging to me. And who else but Jane Austen, the unmarried authoress and creator of Mr. Darcy, could describe falling in love in a more lovelier way?

Until next time,
