"To yield readily -- easily -- to the persuasion of a friend is no merit with you."
Well, now the circumstance has occurred and Elizabeth has changed her tune.
…and much as she had always been disposed to like him, she could not think without anger, hardly without contempt, on that easiness of temper, that want of proper resolution, which now made him the slave of his designing friends, and led him to sacrifice his own happiness to the caprice of their inclinations.(Ch. 24)
Now she thinks of Bingley's pliable nature with "contempt." Do you think Darcy has changed his mind as well? Is he now thankful that Bingley's nature makes him easily persuadable or does he still think of it as "no compliment," even though it has worked in his favor?
