Mansfield Park

Miss Crawford:And besides, Miss Bertram is engaged. Remember that, my dear brother. Her choice is made.

Henry Crawford:Yes, and I like her the better for it. An engaged woman is always more agreeable than a disengaged. She is satisfied with herself. Her cares are over, and she feels that she may exert all her powers of pleasing without suspicion. All is safe with a lady engaged: no harm can be done.


Edmund Bertram: [to Fanny Price] Surely you and I are beyond speaking when words are clearly not enough.

A heart is a fragile thing. That's why we protect them so vigorously, give them away so rarely and why it means so much when we do. Some hearts are more fragile than others. Purer somehow. Like crystal in a world of glass, even the way they shatter is beautiful.

Quotes from all over
