Passages and Quotations: Jane Austen

“…but after a few days the remembrance of the said books grew so potent and stimulative, that Fanny found it impossible not to try for books again. There were none in her father’s house; but wealth is luxurious and daring – and some of hers found its way to a circulating library. She became a subscriber – amazed at being anything in propria persona, amazed at her own doings in every way; to be a renter, a chuser of books!”

From Mansfield Park, by Jane Austen.
