Emma. ★★★★★

There’s something particularly enchanting and romantic about witnessing a flawed, secretly lonely woman unintentionally find true companionship. I’ve had Emma. on my mind endlessly as of late so it was well worth to revisit once again.

For my third watch, I present to you now, quotes of emotional resonance from Emma. (with no context):

“I promise to make none for myself, Papa.” 

“You’ve no idea what it is to have tempers to manage.” 

“There is such… symmetry between us.” 

“He called you… ‘loveliness itself’…”

“You are so used to live alone, you do not know the value of a companion.”

“He writes as if he loves me very much!”

“Perhaps… it is safer…”

“Till men do fall in love with well-informed minds instead of handsome faces, a girl with such loveliness as Harriet has a certainty of being admired and sought after wherever she goes.”

“Better to be without sense altogether than to misapply it as you do.”

“Let us be friends.” 

“You are so kind to me, Miss Woodhouse.” 

“I give you encouragement?”

“You must never leave me, Emma.” 
“Oh, Papa… You know I never could.” 

“You are not often deficient.” 

“You dance so beautifully.” 

“Will you dance, Miss Smith?” 

“With whom will you dance?”
“With you… If you will ask me.” 

“Miss Woodhouse, I believe I am in love again.” 

“We all know at times what it is to be wearied in spirits. Mine, I confess, are exhausted.” 

“With all my heart, I am quite ready.” 

“So very kind. But you are always kind, Miss Woodhouse.”

If I- If I- If I loved you less, then I might be able to talk about it more…

“I cannot break her heart again!”

“Then I shall come here.”
