Pride and Prejudice By Jane Austen- One of my favourite books/movies(the BBC version with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy :)).Have read it so many times, parts of it, the whole thing, and am pretty sure i will do so many more times.Here are a few quotes from the book which i like to keep reading:

"Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us."

"Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure."

"I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine."

"A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony, in a moment."

"It is very often nothing but our own vanity that deceives us."
