Have You Read These Eternally Amazing Quotes By Jane Austen?

Did You Know?

Jane Austen had finished the original versions of Pride and Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, and Sense and Sensibility, by the age of 23.

Jane Austen grew up in a large and close-knit family that encouraged education in every way possible. Her house had an extensive library that she could access at will. Her father too fed her hunger for learning, by supplying her with as much writing material as she needed. This encouraged her to explore her writing skills.

Jane spent most of her early adulthood socializing, helping run the family home, playing piano, and spent many nights that involved cotillions. But, most nights, she would keep herself occupied either in reading or writing a book.

Often, her work mirrored her daily, while her female protagonist reflected her unconventional lifestyle and bringing up.
