[Thoughts in Haiku] Emma

Book Thoughts and Summary in Haiku on: Emma by Jane Austen

Emma, matchmaker
That’s what she attempts to be
Disaster ensues

Dear Mr. Knightley,
Kind and honest gentleman
Girl you love, lucky!

Words exchanged, harsh truth
Assumptions, misconceptions,
then epiphany

“Epiphany” is one of my favorite words… and I just had to insert it here somewhere. 😀

Also, adding in a new section…

Quick Quotable Quotes

  • “I do not know whether it ought to be so, but certainly silly things do cease to be silly if they are done by sensible people in an impudent way.”  – Emma
  • “There are people, who the more you do for them, the less they will do for themselves.” – Emma
  • “Men of sense, whatever you may choose to say, do not want silly wives.” – Mr. Knightley
  • “You must be the best judge of your own happiness.” – Emma
  • “Vanity working on a weak head, produces every sort of mischief.” – Mr. Knightley
  • “I cannot make speeches, Emma . . . If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more. But you know what I am. You hear nothing but truth from me.” – Mr. Knightley
  • Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised or a little mistaken . . .
