Pride & Prejudice --Jane Austen
Lizzie Bennet, one of my first heroines. Probably the first girl that was complex, intelligent, & idolized, that I had read about at the age of 11.
She's a one-size-fits-all heroine. Every person has their vision of who Lizzie Bennet is, what she would or would not say in certain situations."
Lizzie Bennet taught me that it was okay to think outside the box, & do things that weren't expected of you. It was ok to use your brain & fall in love, there's room for reconciliation between the two. I thank Lizzie Bennet for the ability to see the reality in romance, & the romance in reality
