Only the deepest love will persuade me into matrimony which is why I shall end up an old maid.

My three favorite quotes from Pride & Prejudice (the Keira film version, of course) used in describing Elizabeth:

Lady Catherine de Bourgh: You give your opinion very decidedly for so young a person.
Mrs. Gardiner: Take care, my love. That savors strongly of bitterness.
Mr. Gardiner: Oh heavens, Lizzy! What a snob you are!

I mostly enjoy them because I often find them popping into my head as a way to describe myself. A bitter snob who's set in her ways...'tis me, I fear.
