Top Ten Tuesday: (Five) Favourite Pride and Prejudice Quotes

Created by and with thanks to That Artsy Reader! This week’s theme is a book quote freebie, and it comes right in the middle of my Regency-themed May (more on that here!). So what better quotes to use today than (some of) my favourite from Pride and Prejudice?


Starting with a universally acknowledged classic:
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”

I love it because it’s fluffy and adorable:
“Now be sincere; did you admire me for my impertinence?”
“For the liveliness of your mind, I did.”

She’s being full of it when she says it, but Caroline’s still right:
“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book!”

That’s our girl:
“There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.”

And ending on a Collins bonus:
“It’s been many years since I had such an exemplary vegetable.”


What are your favourite Pride and Prejudice moments?

  1. Yes!! So many great quotes in Pride and Prejudice. I used to reread this book once a year, but it’s been awhile now. These made me want to pick it up again. 🙂
