According to a website, happy bday one day late to Anne Elliot!!! “Nobody hears Anne, nobody sees her, but it is she who is ever at the center. It is through her ears, eyes, and mind that we are made to care for what is happening. If nobody is much aware of her, she is very much aware of everyone else and she perceives what is happening to them when they are ignorant of themselves”.-Stuart Tave

“The Post Office has a great charm at one period of our lives”. -Emma
“Fanny is the only character in the novel who has no clear social understanding or identity, but….this timid outsider is the only one who has a wise and consistent moral identity, who has “all the heroism of principle”. She….maintains the true or ideal character of Mansfield Park. And this is the novel that is said to have a fatal lack of irony!”-Douglas Bush
Mr. Knightley quoted:
A wonderful post from Isabelle:Forbes House in Milton might be a nice location to keep in mind for upcoming book discussions. The house can be toured and the grounds are open to the public. I’m attaching the calendar of events. There is a Civil War event this Sunday, for those of us interested… It fits so nicely with our book this month.

”When the celebrated Victorian poet laureate Alfred Lord Tennyson(his bday was a couple of weeks ago-KC) visited Lyme Regis he said, “Don’t talk to me of the Duke of Monmouth. Show me the exact spot where Louisa Musgrove fell.” From “The Friendly Jane Austen” by Natalie Tyler
