Marriane on self-control

“The business of self-command she settled very easily: with strong affections it was impossible; with calm ones it could have no merit.  That her sister’s affections were calm, she dared not deny, though she blushed to acknowledge it; and of the strength of her own, she gave a very striking proof by still loving and respecting that sister in spite of this mortifying conviction.”
