Compliments always take you by surprise, and me never.
-Jane Austen in Pride and Prejudice
So, so vain but also so very funny…I feel as if sometimes a good dose of vain confidence is necessary for mental health. Or perhaps call it by another name: pride…as long as it finds temperance at some point. Indeed, if Darcy hadn’t been prideful, we wouldn’t have our Pride and Prejudice now would we?
