|A favorite Jane Austen sentence!

This is at the end of the 11th paragraph before the end of the last chapter of the novel, and it describes Robert and Lucy's domestic felicity:
"They settled in town, received very liberal assistance from Mrs. Ferrars, were on the best terms imaginable with the Dashwoods, and setting aside the jealousies and ill-will continually subsisting between Fanny and Lucy, in which their husbands of course took a part, as well as the frequent domestic disagreements between Robert and Lucy themselves, nothing could exceed the harmony in which they all lived together."
I just love it! It's so Jane Austen. Anyone else have such a sentence?
