Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously.... Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.

Jane Austen (1775 - 1817), Pride and Prejudice, 1811

On a side note, what woman does not adore Mr Darcy? I know I certainly do, don't you??

Pride and Prejudice didn't come into my life until I was an adult and it was when I lived with famous meags and I sadly...fell asleep! Eeek! Can we still be friends or am I cut off of this blog forever?? Hee hee!
