Donna at Donna’s New Day Reply Mama J on April 12, 2013 at 1:56 am Lots of great quotes there. Reply EmmlyJane on April 13, 2013 at 5:03 pm A favorite of mine: “Every man is surrounded by a neighborhood of voluntary spies.” — Jane Austen This explains so much about the time period in which she lived. As much as I adore the time period, I cannot imagine living under such ridicule. Reply stephscottil on April 16, 2013 at 9:34 am Love these quotes. Some are so reflective of the time, but others really ring true today. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
