Jane Austen on Facebook . . .

Posted in England, Favorite Quotes, Jane Austen at 10:18 pm by catsinboxes

Resignation to inevitable evils is the duty of us all…

Actually, Jane wasn’t writing about Facebook.  The context is Mr. Collins reassuring Mrs. Bennet that he REALLY doesn’t mind about Elizabeth Bennet flatly refusing him.

Still, I found this quote just as I was resigning myself to some inevitable evils of Facebook.   Literally, the timing was perfect.  Just goes to show how relevant Jane Austen is to the everyday life of a 21st century American high school senior!
