Because I am currently un-capable of doing actual work--my mind imitating a contortionist, bending and swerving when I try to steer it towards any one direction, I am instead going to share with you a series of quotes I came across at one of my favorite websites, the Republic of Pemberley (ROP).
One particular thread dealt with favorite lines from novels. I have included my favorite from the list:
"Genius is of small use to a woman who does not know how to do her hair."
"Almost all absurdity of conduct arises from the imitation of those who we cannot resemble."
"Elinor agreed to all, because she did not believe he deserved the compliment of rational opposition."
“It is not a novel to be thrown aside lightly. It should be thrown aside with great force.”
"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."
And my personal favorite:
“He was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad.”
Raphael Sabatini, Scaramouche
