ch.9: [Catherine] was more than once on the point of requesting from Mr. Thorpe a clearer insight into his real opinion on the subject; but she checked herself, because it appeared to her that he did not excel in giving those clearer insights, in making those things plain which he had before made ambiguous.
[Catherine] could not entirely repress a doubt, while she bore with the effusions of [John Thorpe's] endless conceit, of his being altogether completely agreeable. It was a bold surmise, for he was Isabella’s brother; and she had been assured by James that his manners would recommend him to all her sex; but in spite of this, the extreme weariness of his company, which crept over her before they had been out an hour, and which continued unceasingly to increase till they stopped in Pulteney Street again, induced her, in some small degree, to resist such high authority, and to distrust his powers of giving universal pleasure.
With sniffles of most exquisite misery, and the laughing eye of utter despondency, [Isabella] bade her friend adieu and went on.
ch.10: The ladies walked about together, noticing every new face, and almost every new bonnet in the room.
ch.14: "to be labouring only for the torment of little boys and girls [by writing history books], always struck me as a hard fate; and though I know it is all very right and necessary, I have often wondered at the person’s courage that could sit down on purpose to do it.”
