Pride and Prejudice

Okay, so I always wondered who was the prideful one and who was the prejudiced one? I used to think Elizabeth Bennet was prejudiced and Mr. Darcy was proud...but then I heard that it was the other way around.

Well anyways, Pride and Prejudice is the favorite movie of the day....or perhaps I should say movies, because there are two versions that I really like. This was one of my first "period" movies that got me interested in other period movies, reenacting, and history itself. My first was Sense and Sensibility. I watched the newest version of P&P at slumber party one night and absolutely fell in love with the manner of speech, dress, and deportment of the time.

Elizabeth: "Only the deepest love will persuade me into matrimony which is why I shall end an old maid."

Mr. Darcy: "Perfectly tolerable, I daresay, but not nearly handsome enough to tempt me."

Mary Bennet: "What are men compared to rocks and mountains."

Mr. Collins: "What excellent boiled potatoes. It's been many years since I had such an exemplary vegetable."

Mr. Bingley: "I wouldn't be as fastidious as you are for a kingdom. Upon my word!"

Mr. Bennet: "An unhappy alternative lies before you. Your mother will never see you again if you do *not* marry Mr. Collins, and *I* will never see you again if you *do*."

Mrs. Bennet: "You have no compassion for my poor nerves."

I can only find a trailer of the newer version of Pride and Prejudice:

Wives and Daughters

Okay, so this week, I guess I'm just gonna be posting pictures and such of my favorite movies. Today is Wives and Daughters! I really love this movie! I started reading the book last night and I REALLY like it! This movie has SO many memorable quotes too!

My favorite quote: "I'm not saying she was very silly, but one of us were very silly, and it wasn't me."

"You men concern yourselves with the eternal verities. We women are content to ponder the petty things in life."

"He gave me a wasp's nest as a present once."

Mrs. Gibson: "I don't know what you mean by proximate."
Mr. Gibson: "Well go into the surgery and look it up then."

"I'm sorry I said anything about it. I'll try to find a more agreeable piece of news. (pause) Old Marjorie at the lodge is dead."

Here are some pictures!

Wow, I went a little crazy! But I do LOVE this movie! :)
