The Best

from Jane Austen's Persuasion

Mr. Elliot: "Good company is always worth keeping."
Anne: "My idea of good company, Mr. Elliot, is the fellowship of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation and a liberality of ideas. That is what I call good company."
Mr. Elliot: "That is not good company. That is the best."

Another gift from God: the friends I am making in my little city and wonderful children/grown-up playdates!

  1. That is a great quote! Austen is wonderful at those.
