Persuasion by Jane Austen Day 6

April 24, 2021 | Ch. 12

“Captain Wentworth gave her a momentary glance,—a glance of brightness, which seemed to say, ‘That man is struck with you,—and even I, at this moment, see something like Anne Elliot again.’”
Choreography of glance.

“as they drew near the Cobb, there was such a general wish to walk along it… and Louisa soon grew so determined, that the difference of a quarter of an hour, it was found, would be no difference at all.”
The sea, wish, determination, time, contingency.

“Whether it might not strike him, that, like all other qualities of mind, [firmness of character] should have its proportions and limits… a persuadable temper might sometimes be as much in favor of happiness as a very resolute character.”
