More from Emma

General benevolence, but not general friendship, made a man what he ought to be.

What did she say?-Just what she ought, of course. A lady always does.-She said enough to show there need not be despair-and to invite him to say more himself.

There is safety in reserve, but no attraction. One cannot love a reserved person.

Where shall we see a better daughter, or a kinder sister, or a truer friend?

Business, you know, may bring money, but friendship hardly ever does.
