If you recognize that quote, then you are likely a fellow lover of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. There have been many movie adaptations, but my all-time favorite is the BBC version with Mr. Darcy played by Colin Firth. As a matter of fact, it’s my all-time favorite movie, as well!
I wrote about my love for this movie some time ago, but I now want to share with you an awesome P&P-related product on Etsy. Jen has mugs for sale that display a quote from Darcy’s first proposal to Elizabeth – “In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” Love it!
