Mary: “I wonder at Kitty and Lydia. They’re so fond of dancing. I take little pleasure in a ball.”
Lizzy: “I would take more pleasure in this one if there were enough partners as agreeable as Jane’s.”
Mary: “I believe the rewards of observation and reflection are much greater.”
Lizzy: “And so they are when there are none others to be had. We will have to be philosophers, Mary!”
Why do I feel that this exchange perfectly describes my life right now? *sigh* I love it.
