Jane Austen je s svojimi romani kazala, da so ženske prav tako ...

If adventures will not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad.”   —   Jane Austen

(Nowadays, this applies to all of us.  Even knowing that the Q was likely the A, it took me some time getting this one started.  The E was not obvious to me, and I wasn’t sure if the D was going to be the S or the L.  After playing around with the author’s first name being either Mark or Mary I took a chance on Jane.  That made all the difference for me.  Be well . . . be safe and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

To flatter and follow others, without being flattered and followed in turn, is but a state of half enjoyment.”   —   Jane Austen

(Sometimes the flattery and following of others is important to me, but not to the extent where I’m not going to be myself.  Heck!  I know I’m great.  I am a legend in my own mind!  For those who see that . . . huzzah!  For the rest of you . . . thbpbpthpt!!!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I’m not sure how many of you saw this comment from a couple of days ago, so I’m going to re-post it, right here.  There was a Cryptoquote attributed to Stanley Horowitz, on 09/24/16, that I thought was very descriptive.  Well, he recently saw it, or someone pointed it out to him, and he sent this reply:

My name is Stanley Horowitz. I am the author of Winter Is An Etching. I wrote it for the Reader’s Digest in 1983 for $50. In 2016 the Digest returned all rights to me. I wrote other famous quotes for them like, “Nothing lowers the level of conversation more than raising the voice,” and “Worry is a fast getaway on a wooden horse.” Please do not publish my email address or give it out. Thank you, Stanley Horowitz

Pretty cool, huh?  I think it’s the first time the author of a quote, used in the Cryptoquote, has ever written to the blog.  It made my night!      YUR

Vanity working on a weak head, produces every sort of mischief.”   —   Jane Austen

(Even on a strong head, I’d say.  Be well . . . be humble and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I do not want people to be agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them.”   —   Jane Austen

(Is this a line from one of her books?  Or, was she some kind of misanthrope?  It has to be from one of her characters, right?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Selfishness must always be forgiven, you know, because there is no hope for a cure.”   —   Jane Austen

(She said . . . with tongue firmly planted in cheek.  Today’s 1% kind of proves that there is no cure.  But, I’m not so sure we should continually forgive the selfish, and count on some notion of judgement day.  It is a kind of disease . . . like rabies.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not in my nature.”   —   Jane Austen

(OK.  I have no idea in what context this was said.  Therefore, I don’t know what “loving people by halves” means.  Would some English lit – or chick flick – type please explain it to me?)   —   YUR

The person, be it gentlemen or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”   —   Jane Austen

(But “good” is always a subjective matter.  Some people just don’t have the patience to find the good novel that they’ll enjoy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
