“I think Austen was a visionary. I think her female characters are so bright and witty, the themes are brilliant and the men are so sexy in Austen as well – but no man has ever fallen in love with an Austen woman because she is pretty or beautiful or because she has long blonde hair. They fall in love with them because of who they are, because of their vibrancy and intelligence. If only we taught that a little more in our schools.”

Anna Maxwell Martin (Elizabeth Bennet in 2013 BBC Death Comes to Pemberley)

“You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit.”

“I used to look at every one who passed me and wonder, with a mad curiosity, what sort of lives they led. Some of them fascinated me. Others filled me with terror. There was an exquisite poison in the air. I had a passion for sensations.”

Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray (via heresay)
