Some Jane Austen inspiration to get the year started off right:
“No – I must kept my own style and go on in my own way; and though I may never succeed again in that, I am convinced that I should totally fail in any other.”
“There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always arises at every attempt to intimidate me.”
“Laugh as much as you choose, but you will not laugh me out of my opinion.”
“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.” <– Okay, that’s not really inspirational, but totally necessary.
