Period Dramas
“I have for the first time found what I can truly love–I have found you. You are my sympathy–my better self–my good angel–I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you–and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.”

Jane Austen Meme : 2/2 Moments that made you sad/cry while reading

→ Anne Elliot and Frederick Wentworth’s first meeting in 8 years

They had no conversation together, no intercourse but what the commonest civility required. Once so much to each other! Now nothing! There had been a time,…

"Insufferable woman!" was her immediate exclamation. “Worse than I had supposed. Absolutely insufferable! Knightley! I could not have believed it. Knightley! Never seen him in her life before, and call him Knightley! And discover that he is a gentleman!”

“.. My feelings in every respect forbid it. Can I speak plainer? Do not consider me now as an elegant female, intending to plague you, but as a rational creature, speaking the truth from her heart.”

Pride and Prejudice  (via hannahfelony)

avelinas:

There’s a bird… it’s a quite nondescript grey colour. It’s accustomed not to moving too quickly, not to draw attention to itself for fear of being beaten. It wishes it could be in a cage… but sooner or later, slowly, day by day, its wings grow very strong and if you were to look very closely, you would see brilliant scarlet feathers hidden under its drab wings. Until one day, it’s grown so confident that it flaps its red wings and flies straight upwards into the sky.

You transfix me quite.
