textbook love

I'm a little late on this one, but, as I'm reading Jane Austin for my long paper, I hope you'll forgive me.

"It was a gloomy prospect, and all that she could do was to throw a mist over it, and hope when the mist cleared away, she should see something else." Jane Austen's Mansfield Park Norton Critical Edition (1998): 76

"The evening passed with external smoothness, though almost every mind was ruffled; and the music which Sir Thomas called for from his daughters helped to conceal the want of real harmony." Jane Austen's Mansfield Park Norton Critical Edition (1998): 132

"...you have gained so much countenance! - And your figure - Nay, Fanny, do not turn away about it - it is but an uncle. If you cannot bear an uncle's admiration, what is to become of you? You must really begin to harden yourself to the idea of being worth looking at. - You must try not to mind growing up into a pretty woman." Jane Austen's Mansfield Park Norton Critical Edition (1998): 136
