Plain Jane: “There is something so amiable in the prejudices of a young mind, that one is sorry to see them give way to the reception of more general opinions.”
-Jane Austen’s Colonel Brandon, in Sense and Sensibility
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you enjoyed the Men of Austen Week. I’m ending with Colonel Brandon since he seems a man worth giving the final word. Though Marianne initially thought him quiet, broodish, and too old to set her sights on, his wisdom and insight eventually led her to love him when the prejudice of her young mind towards him at last faded.
