an Austen moment

Or two.... Quotes from Persuasion.

"Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story. Education has been theirs in so much a higher degree; the pen has been in their hands, I will not allow books to prove anything."

"All the privilege I claim for my own sex (it is not a very enviable one, you need not covet it) is that of loving longest, when existence or when hope is gone."
