There is nothing I wouldn’t do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves; it is not my nature. ―Jane Austen

[I]t is well to have as many holds upon happiness as possible.

Why not seize the pleasure at once? — How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, foolish preparation!

A large income is the best recipe for happiness I ever heard of.

You must be the best judge of your own happiness.

I wish, as well as everybody else, to be perfectly happy; but like everybody else, it must be in my own way. 

“The younger brother must help to pay for the pleasures of the elder.” – Jane Austen
