Today’s most thankful for book is Pride and Prejudice. Oh, where would the world be without Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy? I’m afraid it would be a much colder and darker world indeed. Pride and Prejudice is the first classic novel I read just for fun.
I decided to read it after watching the movie because I was so captivated by the love story between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. I was not disappointed. I loved the book. Also, one of my favorite lines from all of literature comes from Pride and Prejudice.
“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.”
To me, this quote could not be truer. The truth of the matter is that even good people do bad things sometimes. We are all human beings and we all make mistakes, and yes there are some just flat out bad people out there. The world we live in is rarely black and white, 95% of the time it’s gray. The best thing we can do is understand that and not put too emphasis on how we think someone will or should act.
The moral of the story Pride and Prejudice is a great book that I believe everyone should read.
