S & S

I've been recently engrossed in Jane Austen's Sense & Sensibility. I have found a quote from the 1995 version of the film that describes my desires for a husband perfectly.

You require so much!

I do not! I require only what any young woman of taste should - a man who sings well, dances admirably, rides bravely, reads with passion and whose tastes agree in every point with my own.

Isn't this what we all want?


  1. I agree with Mrs. Dashwood "You require so much!" :)

    I'm more inclined to agree with Edward, "All I want, all I've ever wanted, is the quiet of a private life..."

    And after watching the movie all the way through, I can definitely say that I am an Elinor through and through. Now where's my Edward? ;)
