Quotes From Persuasion:
Anne Elliot: My instinct tells me, he is charming and clever
but I have seen no burst of feeling, warmth of fury or delight
Captain Harvile: Poor Phoebe, she would not have forgotten
him so soon. It was not in her nature.
Anne Elliot: It would not be in the nature of any woman
who truly loved.
Captain Harvile: Do you claim that for your sex?
Anne Elliot: We do not forget you as soon as you forget
us. We cannot help ourselves. We live at home, quiet, confined,
and our feelings prey upon us. You always have business
of some sort or other to take you back into the world.
Captain Harvile: I won't allow it to be any more man's nature
than women's to be inconstant or to forget those they love
or have loved. I believe the reverse. I believe... Let me
just observe that all histories are against you, all stories,
prose, and verse. I do not think I ever opened a book in
my life which did not have something to say on women's fickleness.
Anne Elliot: But they were all written by men.
Captain Wentworth: I come on business, Sir Walter.
Sir Walter Elliot: Business?
Captain Wentworth: Yes, my proposal of marriage to your
daughter, Anne, has been accepted and I respectfully, sir,
request permission to set a date.
Sir Walter Elliot: Anne? You want to marry Anne? Whatever
Mr. Shepherd: Women without children are the very best
preservers of furniture.
Anne Elliot: You presume to know me very well, Mr Elliot.
Mr. Elliot: In my heart I know you intimately.
