Art and Austen

Julius LeBlanc Stewart -- Reading Aloud

"The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid."   --Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

Happy Birthday, Jane Austen!


  1. I love this quote! I discovered it when I read Northanger Abbey this summer. And what a gorgeous painting. Thanks for sharing (and happy birthday, Jane!)

  2. Wonderful quote:) I read some of my favorite passages last night. Huge Austen fan.
