Happy Birthday, Jane Austen!

Hello All!

Today, December 16th, 2015, is Jane Austen’s 240th birthday! I’d like to take a moment to thank her for the masterpieces she gave to the world, and everything that she has taught me through them. Including this: The best guys aren’t always the ones with the most charisma, family is the most important thing (next to finding a husband 😉 ); there is “no enjoyment like reading” and “nothing like staying at home for real comfort”; love isn’t easy, but it’s worth it; the best remedy for anything is a little witticism; you can change the world with a pen and ink; don’t shy away from having an opinion just because you’re not expected to; and “It isn’t what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.” These are few of many. Thank you, Jane! I want to be just like you when I grow up… maybe by the time I’m 240 I’ll be half the writer you were. 🙂
