When Willoughby is exclaiming his shock at Mrs. Dashwood's desire to make improvements to the cottage, Elinor tells him, "Do not be alarmed...nothing of the kind will be done; for my mother will never have money enough to attempt it."
"I am heartily glad of it," he cried. "May she always be poor, if she can employ her riches no better." LOL! Leave it to Willoughby to come up with such a line. It reminds me of someone on one of these boards once saying that JA characters who enthuse about/profess to love a cottage are always the ones who are wealthy and don't have to live in them. :-)
