“Oh, Elinor, how incomprehensible are your feelings! You had rather take evil upon credit than good.”

Spoken by Mrs. Dashwood

After Willoughby leaves and Marianne’s heart is broken, Mrs. Dashwood would rather hope the best for them, but Elinor is more realistic.

Mothers and daughters often fail to understand each other,  no?
