Today is the final day of the challenge. I was nominated by The Irish Procrastinator, whose poetry and musings are highly entertaining (so if you haven’t already done so, now would be the perfect time to pay her a little visit).
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
3. Nominate three bloggers each day.
Today’s quotes are taken from Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen.
I felt that I had no choice but to hand the final day of the challenge over to one of my literary heroes. Choosing a single quote proved to be quite impossible, however, so here are two of my all-time favourite quotes for your delectation. At the end of a very happy few days of quote-gathering, I leave you in the very capable hands of the comedy duo, Mr. and Mrs. Bennet:
Mrs. Bennet: “You take delight in vexing me. You have no compassion on my poor nerves.”
Mr. Bennet: “You mistake me, my dear. I have a high respect for your nerves. They are my old friends. I have heard you mention them with consideration these twenty years at least.”
“Indeed, Mr. Bennet,” said she, “it is very hard to think that Charlotte Lucas should ever be mistress of this house, that I should be forced to make way for her, and live to see her take my place in it!”
“My dear, do not give way to such gloomy thoughts. Let us hope for better things. Let us flatter ourselves that I may be the survivor.”
I feel very tempted to nominate myself, just to continue the fun, but I fear that may be regarded as cheating.
Instead, here are my final three nominees:
As always, there is never any obligation to take part!
