in consequence of the missive, The Proposal, penned by Cheryl
"Believe me, my dear Miss Elizabeth, that your modesty, so far from doing you any disservice, rather adds to your other perfections. You would have been less amiable in my eyes had there not been this little unwillingness; (Chapter 19)
My favorite is above when Mr. Collins turns Lizzy’s wish not to meet privately with him into amiable female reluctance. I think Mr. Collins may actually tie with Darcy for pride at this point in the novel. His opinion of himself and his situation is so high he cannot conceive that Lizzy is rejecting his proposal. It is hilarious! Whenever Lizzy says something he does not wish to hear Mr. Collins just twists it into a compliment about her character (above) or flattering encouragement, affectation or the coquetry of an elegant female. Snort-worthy barely describes it. ;D
