Mrs. D. on expectations

“‘One must not expect everything.'”

Mrs. Dashwood, on hoping to improve Barton Cottage but expecting not to have the money to be able to do it
Sense & Sensibility, volume 1, chapter 6

Rather ironic coming from Mrs. Dashwood!  Unfortunately, in other realms of life, she is not so philosophical and has to learn this lesson the hard way.
