Vain opposition

Ja_2008_cal “Husbands and wives generally understand when opposition will be in vain.”

When Mary does not want Charles to go to dinner at his parents, leaving her with little Charles, who has just fallen and dislocated his collar bone.
Persuasion, volume 1, chapter 7

Today’s quote is from my lovely 2007 Jane Austen calendar from JASNA.  Order yours for 2008.
