Pride and prejudice quotes about marriage


here are 15 notable quotes about marriage from Jane Austen’s classic novel “Pride and Prejudice”:

  • “It is better to know as little as possible of the defects of the person with whom you are to pass your life.”
  • “You are too generous to trifle with me. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes are unchanged, but one word from you will silence me on this subject forever.”
  • “Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”
  • “I could easily forgive his pride if he had not mortified mine.”
  • “I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.”

  • “You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
  • “We are all fools in love.”
  • “I am the happiest creature in the world. Perhaps other people have said so before, but not one with such justice. I am happier even than Jane; she only smiles, and I laugh.”
  • “I am not afraid of being overpowered by the impression. It will pass away soon enough.”
