Day 03: Favorite Austen Book → Persuasion
”You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight and a half years ago. Dare not say that a man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant.”

I went with Persuasion because this is the novel I feel most strongly about, every time I read it I feel every sting Anne does and my heart yearns for them to be together just as ardently as the first time. SRS FEELS! I think I cry every single time if im honest. I think thats because there is something about missed opportunities and nostalgia for our youth that everyone can relate to. Or maybe I just adore angst, who knows.
