Jane Austen Quote of the Week 247

This week I was on an introductory teacher training course and it was really interesting. Lots was discussed, including the historical view that boys were first in line for an education.

I have chosen a quote from Chaper 1 of Mansfield Park:

Give a girl an education and introduce her properly into the world, and ten to one but she has the means of settling well, without further expense to anybody. ”

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Wow, that is a good one! So true! I just ordered a book: "The Jane Austen Guide to Life: Thoughtful Lessons for the Modern Woman" by Lori Smith which should prove very interesting considering your quote, Rachel.

Yrs aff'ly,
