Jane Austen Quote of the Week 253

This week I have not chosen a Jane Austen quote but instead a quote from The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James as it stood out for me this week.

"I believe there is a kind of happiness to be found in every thing in life, in all that is good and pleasing, as well as in that which is sad or poignant."

Through the work that I do I hear peoples experiences, often these experiences are intense and challenging to overcome. This is a quote that some people may disagree with on initially reading. The "kind of" is relevant as we learn from every experience and this is to vital for us developing through our lives.

Thank you, Rachel, that means a lot to me. I have been struggling with that and came to the same conclusion as your quote, so I consider it as a 'second witness' to my belief.

Jane and I have a lot in common, it seems. hee hee.

Yrs aff'ly,
Linda the Librarian
