↳Elizabeth Bennet (Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen)
“And those are the words of a gentleman. From the first moment I met you, your arrogance and conceit, your selfish disdain for the feelings of others made me realize that you were the last man in the world I could ever be prevailed upon to marry.”
“And then the music that starts at the window you´ll recognised as being the music that we first hear when we enter Longbourn at the very, very beginning of the film. And the reason why I used the same piece of music is because it would remind her of home. That finding the person you´re supposed to be with is like coming home. And that, even though this house is so completely different from her house, it´s the same spirit, the same music moves there”.

Miss Elizabeth. I have struggled in vain and I can bear it no longer. These past months have been a torment. I came to Rosings with the single object of seeing you… I had to see you. I have fought against my better judgment, my family’s expectations, the inferiority of your birth by rank and circumstance. All these things I am willing to put aside and ask you to end my agony.
