  • "But she does help him on, as much as her nature will allow. If I can perceive her regard for him, he must be a simpleton indeed not to discover it too."


    "Remember, Eliza, that he does not know Jane's disposition1 as you do."


    "But if a woman is partial to a man, and does not endeavour2 to conceal3 it, he must find it out."


    "Perhaps he must, if he sees enough of her. But though Bingley and Jane meet tolerably often, it is never for many hours together; and as they always see each other in large mixed parties, it is impossible that every moment should be employed in conversing4 together. Jane should therefore make the most of every half hour in which she can command his attention. When she is secure of him, there will be leisure for falling in love as much as she chooses."


    "Your plan is a good one," replied Elizabeth, "where nothing is in question but the desire of being well married; and if I were determined5 to get a rich husband, or any husband, I dare say I should adopt it. But these are not Jane's feelings; she is not acting6 by design. As yet, she cannot even be certain of the degree of her own regard, nor of its reasonableness. She has known him only a fortnight. She danced four dances with him at Meryton; she saw him one morning at his own house, and has since dined in company with him four times. This is not quite enough to make her understand his character."


    "Not as you represent it. Had she merely dined with him, she might only have discovered whether he had a good appetite; but you must remember that four evenings have been also spent together -- and four evenings may do a great deal."


    "Yes; these four evenings have enabled them to ascertain7 that they both like Vingt-un better than Commerce; but with respect to any other leading characteristic, I do not imagine that much has been unfolded."


    "Well," said Charlotte, "I wish Jane success with all my heart; and if she were married to him to-morrow, I should think she had as good a chance of happiness as if she were to be studying his character for a twelvemonth. Happiness in marriage is entirely8 a matter of chance. If the dispositions9 of the parties are ever so well known to each other, or ever so similar before-hand, it does not advance their felicity in the least. They always contrive10 to grow sufficiently11 unlike afterwards to have their share of vexation; and it is better to know as little as possible of the defects of the person with whom you are to pass your life."


    "You make me laugh, Charlotte; but it is not sound. You know it is not sound, and that you would never act in this way yourself."
