Quote of the Day.

This is so funny! For those who know about Pride and Prejudice, you will know what scene this came from! I came across this quote in my Vocabulary book!

"Mr. Hurst looked at her [Miss Bennet] with astonishment.

" 'Do you prefer reading to cards?' said he; 'that is rather singular [strange].'

" 'Miss Eliza Bennet,' said Miss Bingley, 'despises cards. She is a great reader, and has no pleasure in anything else.'
I deserve neither such praise nor such censure [blame],' cried Elizabeth; 'I am not a great reader, and I have pleasure in many things.' " -Jane Austen {Pride and Prejudice}
