I'm watching Pride and Prejudice
for the millionth time.
Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet
Such a great romance
~ a time when taking someone's hand sent chills ~
There was pride.
There was prejudice.
[After Lizzy - to her own surprise - has agreed to dance with Mr. Darcy]
~ ~ ~Elizabeth Bennet: Did I just agree to dance with Mr. Darcy?Charlotte Lucas: I daresay you will find him to be very amiable.Elizabeth Bennet: That would be most inconvenient since I have sworn to loathe him for all eternity.
There was love.
Elizabeth: After what you have done for Lydia, and I suspect for Jane also, it is I who should be making amends.
Mr. Darcy: You must know, surely you must know, it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night and it has taught me to hope as I had scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings had changed, I will have to tell you, you have bewitched me body and soul and I love...I love... I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.
Elizabeth Bennet: Well then... [takes Mr. Darcy's hands and kisses them] Your hands are cold.
