Jane Austen Quote Game - Answers!


These are the answers to the Jane Austen Quote Game I posted last week. Thanks to everyone who played! I was glad to see so many people recognizing the quotes of Jane Austen!

This game also made it to Jane Austen Today's Friday Finds post. Thank you Vic!

Quote #3 - "To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment." - Fanny Price, Mansfield Park

Quote #4 - "It is happy for you that you possess the talent of flattering with delicacy. May I ask whether these pleasing attentions proceed from the impulse of the moment, or are the result of previous study?" - Mr. Bennet, Pride and Prejudice

Quote #10 - "...if you observe, people always live for ever when there is any annuity to be paid them." - Fanny Dashwood, Sense and Sensibility

Quote #11 - "Where so many hours have been spent in convincing myself that I am right, is there not some reason to fear I may be wrong?" - Colonel Brandon, Sense and Sensibility

Quote #12 - "Oh! do not attack me with your watch. A watch is always too fast or too slow. I cannot be dictated to by a watch." - Mary Crawford, Mansfield Park

Though I have read most of the Austen books - I admit I am terrible at remembering which character said what. Oh my goodness... it was fun, however... to read these clever quotes and learn which characters said them.

I enjoy these "little diversions"! (Mrs Elton - Emma)

Great quiz! 21 out of 30 grrrr! Reading Emma now, thought someone else in that book said #5. Glad Adm Croft made the quiz and I got that one right!
