Jane Austen image via mollands.netPlain Jane: “she was one of that numerous class of females, whose society can raise no other emotion than surprise at there being any men in the world who could like them well enough to marry them.”

-Jane Austen in Northanger Abbey

Like I said in Jane Explained, no one is safe from the frank, opinionated pen of Jane Austen; a fact that makes her writing so fun for its impartial comments on the best, and worst, of society. May you never be one of this “numerous class of females!”
