“Do not be in a hurry…” Jane Austen, letter to her niece

Do not be in a hurry, the right man will come at last; you will in the course of the next two or three years meet with somebody more generally unexceptionable than anyone you have yet known, who will love you as warmly as possible, and who will so completely attract you that you will feel as if you never really loved before. – Jane Austen, letter to her niece, Fanny
