Plain Jane: “Morning visits are never fair by women at her time of life, who make themselves up so little.”

-Jane Austen in Persuasion

Goodness Jane…she just comes right out and says it. You have probably thought it though haven’t you? That’s why she’s so brilliant. You thought it, or she knew you would think it because she understands human nature; and, when you read it and identify with it you are instantly connected by a little thread to her novels and letters that just keeps bringing you back for more insightful peeks or more laughs at the characters she illuminates.
