Jane Austen makes me LOL


“Adieu to disappointment and spleen. What are men to rocks and mountains.”
-Elizabeth Bennet, “Pride and Prejudice”

    A refined bumper sticker for the proper Colorado mountain girl.

    This is one of my favorite Austen quotes ever, and I said it to myself just before going on a backpacking trip with friends almost 5 years ago. A backpacking trip which lead to the dating and subsequent marrying of Sir Adam.

    Wasn’t it Mary Bennett that talks about rocks and mountains, not Elizabeth? It could be that Lizzie mocks her later, but I’m pretty sure it was Mary that says that originally…
