“You are too generous to trifle with me. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes are unchanged; but one word from you will silence me on this subject forever.”

In keeping with the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’, here is another quote from that work, and in accompaniment is this ‘A Wet Sunday Morning’ painting by Edmund Blair Leighton, a Pre-Raphaelite artist who delved into some feminine romantic Regency themes.
