Open Book: Emma

Open Book: Painting a smile with words. These quotes all practically about marriage or something around that topic. And i liked them, either as a statement or as a truth.

Title: Emma
Author: Jane Austen

Chapter 7:
"I lay it down as a general rule, Harriet, that if a woman doubts as to whether she should accept a man or not, she certainly ought to refuse him. If she can hesitate as to 'Yes', she ought to say 'No', directly. It is not a state to be safely entered into with doubtful feeling, with half a heart."
Chapter 7: "A woman is not to marry a man merely because she is asked, or because he is attached to her, and can write a tolerable letter."
Chapter 8:
"it is always incomprehensible to a man, that a woman should ever refuse an offer of marriage. A man always imagines a woman to be ready for anybody who asks her."
Chapter 8:
"Vanity working on a weak head produces every sort of mischief."
