in consequence of the missive, This week's LOL lines, penned by Line
and all the rest of [Thorpe's] conversation, or rather talk, began and ended with himself and his own concerns.
Ch. 10: (best warm fuzzy conversation):
“Perhaps we — Yes, I think we certainly shall.” [Miss Tilney]
“I am glad of it, for we shall all be there.” This civility was duly returned; and they parted — on Miss Tilney’s side with some knowledge of her new acquaintance’s feelings, and on Catherine’s, without the smallest consciousness of having explained them.
C: “Yes, I am. I have always lived there, and always been very happy. But certainly there is much more sameness in a country life than in a Bath life. One day in the country is exactly like another.”
“But then you spend your time so much more rationally in the country.”
“Do you not?”
Is there a Henry in the world who could be insensible to such a declaration? Henry Tilney at least was not.
“Dear madam,” cried Catherine, “then why did not you tell me so before? I am sure if I had known it to be improper, I would not have gone with Mr. Thorpe at all; but I always hoped you would tell me, if you thought I was doing wrong.”
Ch. 14:(as a mom, I especially like this one)“That little boys and girls should be tormented,” said Henry, “is what no one at all acquainted with human nature in a civilized state can deny;"
Ch. 15: his adieus were not long; and they would have been yet shorter, had he not been frequently detained by the urgent entreaties of his fair one that he would go. Twice was he called almost from the door by her eagerness to have him gone.
