Jane Austen On Character

"There is something so amiable in the prejudices of a young mind, that one is sorry to see them give way to the reception of more general opinions." ~ Colonel Brandon in Sense and Sensibility

Colonel Brandon's past disappointments and misfortunes make him the exact companion to understand Marianne's young heart and help her through her own disappointments and misfortunes. I do respect and admire Colonel Brandon. Both heroes in Sense & Sensibility are gentle, kind and honorable. Just the type of gentleman I hope to meet with some day!

Here I've featured banners I've made with screencaps from two different S&S adaptations. I love both of these but the newer BBC adaptation is closer to the novel.

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

Very Truly Your's,

My favorite Colonel Brandon moment is in the film version with Kate Winslet. It is the expression on the Colonel's face when Marianne (Winslet) says "Thank you" to him from her sick bed.
