Pemberley state of mind

" I think you feel very lonely if you’re not loved. If you can’t find that love somewhere, you’re going to have a pretty meaningless life.”

(Keira Knightley)

"Pride and prejudice", Chapter 60.

Hi! I was just wondering, which do you think is Elizabeth Bennet's favorite color?

IDK but take a look at what Jane Austen wrote about it.

Surprise a beautiful person! Once you get this, put it into at least 8 people’s asks (anonymously) who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing bad will happen, but it is nice to know that someone thinks you’re beautiful inside and out! <3

THANKS dear anon :)!!! Jane Austen´s world is the beautiful thing here, I just try to honor it as best as I can.

"To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love."

(“Pride and prejudice”, Chapter 3)

Pride? What pride?

"Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonimously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”

(“Pride and prejudice”, Chapter 5)

"I cast Rosamund because I knew she wasn’t going to play Jane as a nice, simple person. Jane has a real interior world, she has her heart broken.”

(Joe Wright, Director)

"Pride & Prejudice is a love letter to the English landscape from its director Joe Wright. There are many smaller notes, where the film exults in the quieter glories of England. There are long wet meads with small tufts of reeds; modest rivers weaving through flat meadows; small woods perched on ridges over long fields; all moist, green and rich. It is a landscape in sympathetic participation with the human, and pleasantly unique to us.”

Proud dad.

Portrait of Mrs. Harriet Quentin by Jean François-Marie Huet-Villiers.

After attending an exhibition Jane Austen wrote to her sister that she had found a portrait of Mrs Bingley’s:
"Mrs. Bingley&#8217;s is exactly herself-size, shaped face, features, and sweetness; there never was a greater likeness. She is dressed in a white gown,with green ornaments, which convinces me of what I had always supposed, that green was a favourite colour with her. I dare say Mrs. Darcy will be in yellow&#8230;
&#8230;.and I am disappointed, for there was nothing like Mrs Darcy at either. I can only imagine that Mr Darcy prizes any Picture of her too much to like it should be exposed to the public eye. I can imagine he would have that sort of feeling, that mixture of love, pride, and delicacy.&#8221;

Yes, many people told me about it and I had a great time watching. I think it´s so original and talented and I must say that I´m extremely proud that Ashley Clements once reblogged one of my posts. Love her.
