Quotation of the Week (22/09)

Jane Austen, portrait from 1873, based on a drawing by her sister.
(Picture borrowed from the Swedish Wikipedia article about J.A.)

Woman is fine for her own satisfaction alone. No man will admire her the more, no woman will like her the better for it.

Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey
