Northanger Abbeyger quotes by Jane Austen
#1. Friendship is certainly the finest balm for the pangs of disappointed love. #Quote by Jane Austen
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by Libby Page
#2. When Kate was younger, stories were her friends when she found people challenging. She searched them out, hiding among them in the library and tucking herself into their pages. She folded herself into the shape of Hermione Granger or George from The Famous Five or Catherine Moreland from Northanger Abbey and tried to be them for a day. When she started secondary school her friends were the characters she met in the pages of her books. They sat with her in the library as she snuck mouthfuls of sandwich behind books so the librarian wouldn't see. (The librarian always saw, but pretended not to.) #Quote by Libby Page
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by Emily C.A. Snyder
#3. But neither could compare with the gargantuan natural edifice that was the mountain upon which Nachtstürm Castle rose. It was a mountain made of the darkness between two lightning bolts. It was made less of earth than Stygian frost. Whole towns fell away as they ascended, as though the ranks of black and frowning conifers waged war against the humans below. Even the path – rather narrow and rarely straight – seemed less made by centuries of pilgrim feet and more by the trace of some careless demon's claw.

It was, in fact, perfect. #Quote by Emily C.A. Snyder
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by Rebecca West
#4. [On Jane Austen] She was fully possessed of the idealism which is a necessary ingredient of the great satirist. If she criticized the institutions of earth, it was because she had very definite ideas regarding the institutions of heaven. #Quote by Rebecca West
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by JJ Feild
#5. Before 'Austenland,' I got do a lead role in 'Northanger Abbey', which is Jane Austen. Growing up in England, you can't really ignore Jane Austen. It's always been there. #Quote by JJ Feild
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by Jenni James
#6. I didn't have a heart until I meet you.
That smile is killin me too.
I can't look away.
Can I always stay?
I can't look away.
I need to stay.
I didn't have a heart until I meet you. #Quote by Jenni James
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by Emily C.A. Snyder
#7. Another strike of lightening – now accompanied by the deep-bellied rumble, and the horse reared, incidentally setting Henry very picturesquely against the inconstant moon. Alas, Catherine was deeply engaged in her argument with Old Edric and this missed entirely the melodramatic display. But we may assume that, possessing so strong an imagination, Catherine had often pictured Henry thus... #Quote by Emily C.A. Snyder
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by Jane Austen
#8. Let us leave it to the reviewers to abuse such effusions of fancy at their leisure and over every new novel to talk in threadbare strains of the trash with which the press now groans. #Quote by Jane Austen
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by Jane Austen
#9. People that marry can never part, but must go and keep house together. People that dance only stand opposite each other in a long room for half an hour. #Quote by Jane Austen
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by Val McDermid
#10. It's your fault because you got me into Morag Fraser. I'd never even heard of the Hebridean Harpies series till you dragged me along to her event. And now I am totally hooked. I was reading Vampires on Vatersay till one in the morning. I just had to finish it. And then I started Banshees of Berneray at breakfast and I could hardly drag myself away from it to come and meet you. #Quote by Val McDermid
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by Jane Austen
#11. You are fond of history! And so are Mr. Allen and my father; and I have two brothers who do not dislike it. So many instances within my small circle of friends is remarkable! At this rate, I shall not pity the writers of history any longer. If people like to read their books, it is all very well, but to be at so much trouble in filling great volumes, which, as I used to think, nobody would willingly ever look into, to be labouring only for the torment of little boys and girls, always struck me as a hard fate; and though I know it is all very right and necessary, I have often wondered at the person's courage that could sit down on purpose to do it. #Quote by Jane Austen
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by Jane Austen
#12. Good heaven! My dear Isabella, what do you mean? Can you
can you really be in love with James? #Quote by Jane Austen
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by Jane Austen
#13. They danced again, and when the assembly closed, parted, on the lady's side at least, with a strong inclination for continuing the acquaintance. Whether she thought of him so much while she drank her warm wine and water and prepared herself for bed as to dream of him when there, cannot be ascertained; but I hope it was no more than in a light slumber, or a morning doze at most, for if it be true, as a celebrated writer has maintained, that no young lady can be justified in falling in love before the gentleman's love is declared, it must be very improper that a young lady should dream of a gentlemen before the gentleman is first known to have dreamed of her. #Quote by Jane Austen
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by Jane Austen
#14. No man is offended by another man's admiration of the woman he loves; it is the woman only who can make it a torment. #Quote by Jane Austen
Northanger Abbeyger quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#15. Apart from such chaotic classics as these, my own taste in novel reading is one which I am prepared in a rather especial manner, not only to declare, but to defend. My taste is for the sensational novel, the detective story, the story about death, robbery and secret societies; a taste which I share in common with the bulk at least of the male population of this world. There was a time in my own melodramatic boyhood when I became quite fastidious in this respect. I would look at the first chapter of any new novel as a final test of its merits. If there was a murdered man under the sofa in the first chapter, I read the story. If there was no murdered man under the sofa in the first chapter, I dismissed the story as tea-table twaddle, which it often really was. But we all lose a little of that fine edge of austerity and idealism which sharpened our spiritual standard in our youth. I have come to compromise with the tea-table and to be less insistent about the sofa. As long as a corpse or two turns up in the second, the third, nay even the fourth or fifth chapter, I make allowance for human weakness, and I ask no more. But a novel without any death in it is still to me a novel without any life in it. I admit that the very best of the tea-table novels are great art - for instance, Emma or Northanger Abbey. Sheer elemental genius can make a work of art out of anything. Michelangelo might make a statue out of mud, and Jane Austen could make a novel out of tea - that much more contem #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
