I Love Austen Week -- Quotations Quiz


Happy Valentine's Day!  To celebrate, I present a romantic quiz for your Austenly enjoyment.  We have here twelve Valentines bearing quotations about love and romance from Austen's six major novels.  You can imagine they're romantic notes sent from one character to another, or whatever.  Some are easy.  Some are difficult.  Some are from heroes, others from heroines, and some are from characters nobody likes at all.  There are multiple quotations from some characters.  Each Valentine gets two points, one for which book it's from, and one for what character said it.  Put your guesses in the comments, and I'll post the answers and everyone's scores on Saturday!

  10. These are all lovely quote, and I love how they are set up on these awesome backgrounds. I have no idea what they're from, but I love the matrimony one. Kind of appropriate for me, huh!

    1. DKoren, thanks! I had a lot of fun (and headaches) getting them to work on cute little Valentine-y backgrounds. The matrimony one is from the Austen book you just finished (not to give anything away to those guessing, hee).

    #2. Sense and Sensibility; Elinor
    #3. Emma; Mr. Knightley
    #4. Persuasion; Captain Wentworth
    #5. Pride and Prejudice; Elizabeth Bennet
    #6. Argh! This one is SO familiar! I should know it! But somehow I can't place it. :( Okay. Very random guess. Northanger Abbey; Henry Tilney. (Ooh. How I hate making guesses when I'm nowhere near certain of the answer. ;P)
    #7. Another random guess: Mansfield Park? Fanny?
    #8. Persuasion? Captain Wentworth?
    #9. Pride and Prejudice; Mr. Collins
    #10. Not sure, but is that Henry Crawford from Mansfield Park? (Sounds like something he would say.)
    #11. Goodness! These ARE hard! Mr. Elton from Emma. (Okay, I'm sure that's wrong.)
    #12. Mansfield Park? Mary Crawford?

    Well, I guess that's the best I can do. Thanks for the fun game, Hamlette. I enjoyed it! (Though I have a feeling I'm going to be very embarrassed when I find out how many of these I got wrong. HAHAHA! :P
