Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security. Jane Austen's use of biting irony, along with her realism and social commentary have earned her great and historical importance to critics and scholars.

There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere and we are all apt to expect too much, but then if one scheme of happiness fails human nature turns to another, if the first calculation is wrong we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere...

Nothing is more deceitful than the appearance of humility. It is often only carelessness of opinion and sometimes an indirect boast.
From politics it was an easy step to silence.
Nobody is healthy in London, nobody can be.
