I Love A Good Quiz

And one that deals with Jane Austen is simply too much to endure! Try this out. It's a bit lengthy, but worth it. As an avid reader of Miss Austen's, this was truly fun. Of course, it didn't hurt that I ended up as my favorite character. Try it out and see who you best resemble. Then, either pick up one of her books, or plug in to the A&E version of Pride and Prejudice, and lose yourself in her world. Think about how truly vital it was in those days to "make a good match", and what marriage meant to not only a woman's happiness, but to her lot in life (and possibly that of her family as in this story). Think about your own marriage...has it led to your happiness? If not, what can you do to move it towards a happier state?

Speaking of marriage, here are some quotes to ponder:

There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.

Mark Twain:
Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.

Friedrich Nietzsche:
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.

Robert C. Dodds:
The goal in marriage is not to think alike, but to think together.

Will Stanton:
Getting a dog is like getting married. It teaches you to be less self-centered, to accept sudden, surprising outbursts of affection, and not to be upset by a few scratches on your car.
