Plain Jane: “If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I would have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love… I love… I love you. And I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.”
–Jane Austen’s Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice
Jane sure knew what a good proposal sounded like, perhaps that’s why she never married, she could always top the proposals of the men proposing to her, and, lets face it, what woman wants that? Mr. Darcy has not one but two knee-melting propositions to Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice and at last, number two did the trick.
