Teaser Tuesday - Pride and Prejudice

It's Teaser Tuesday...

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser...

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 opionion of ourselves; vanity to what we would have others think of us.
Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen - Page 21

  2. Very true! A lovely quote from a lovely book. I've been craving some Austen lately... maybe it's time for me to read Persuasion at last.
