I have a special reason for using the following quote this week. My granddaughter and I went to see a local presentation on stage of "Pride and Prejudice" with local actors. And that is why this quote is a wee bit late. I must say that it was beatifully done, the actors were superb, the script well done, and the stage props lovely! I had no idea that the local folks were quite as capable of putting on such a lovely show! I am now inclined to go see some of next seasons presentations.
So, from Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 1 I quote:
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."
That is of course, a very well-known sentence, but it does carry lots of wisdom also. And dear Jane proves it with the rest of the novel.
