"Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of. but do it in private
and wash your hands afterwards." --Robert Heinlein.

Jane Austen Quotes

Jane Austen always has some great quotes in her novels, these are from Northanger Abbey:

"All have been, or at least all have believed themselves to be, in danger from the pursuit of someone whom they wished to avoid; and all have been anxious for the attentions of someone whom they wished to please."

"The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid."
