Austenland, 2013.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters. 

Beware how you give your heart.
— Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey (via quoted-books)

This is the coolest thing anyone has ever done for me!

I’d rather be your partner in life, than your partner in business.

you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.
