Like A Thief
IN The Night


"And we swagger because we do not know how to part with our rage, which we cherish and press cutting close, but we learn to swagger — or rather, we’re swaggered, briefly, while the wind blows and things burn and our hands are full — because we know it darkly all the same."

"Miss Elizabeth. I have struggled in vain and I can bear it no longer. These past months have been a torment. I came to Rosings with the single object of seeing you… I had to see you. I have fought against my better judgment, my family’s expectations, the inferiority of your birth by rank and circumstance. All these things I am willing to put aside and ask you to end my agony." - Mr. Darcy

"You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."

I was born to watch period drama:
Pride & Prejudice (2005)

"Count your blessings, Lizzy. If he liked you, you’d have to talk to him."

"Precisely. As it is I wouldn’t dance with him for all of Darbyshire, let alone the miserable half."

“They don’t really touch. Women don’t shake hands with men, so the first time Darcy touches Elizabeth is when he helps her into the carriage, which is a really beautiful moment because it’s the first skin on skin touch, and I think today, you know, we don’t think about that at all.” -  Keira Knightley
