On walking the high downs

“‘Is there a felicity in the world superior to this?  Margaret, we will walk here at least two hours.'”

Marianne on her walk with Margaret, when it looks like rain, just before she meets Willoughby
Sense & Sensibility, volume 1, chapter 9 (emphasis mine)

Love this little gem of Marianne’s enthusiasm…

  1. Oh I use that line often. One of my all time favourites. Thanks for making me smile.

  2. And I loved the “Oh help” look on Margaret’s face in last night’s adaptation when she said it. That would so be me. 😉
