A Little More Fun With Google Translate...

This one is for the wonderful Chessie, who requested some Jane Austin...

Pride and Prejudice...

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.

However, little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighborhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered as the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters.

Translates to...

And the real world clearly, you'd be a lucky girl.

Feelings, however, little is known or opinions of the people around you, is the fact that, deep in the heart of the legal ownership of his daughter in the heart of local families.

And I've always been partial to this Sense and Sensibility quote about Marianne and Willoughby...

When he was present she had no eyes for anyone else. Everything he did was right. Everything he said was clever. If their evenings at the Park were concluded with cards, he cheated himself and all the rest of the party to get her a good hand. If dancing formed the amusement of the night, they were partners for half the time; and when obliged to separate for a couple of dances, were careful to stand together, and scarcely spoke a word to anybody else. Such conduct made them, of course, most exceedingly laughed at; but ridicule could not shame, and seemed hardly to provoke them.

And now...

If I was on stage most of the others. They are right. It was noted that the only way, he said. Bameulneun cards in the park, it was concluded that if a crime, and the rest of the game, you can get good hands. If you want to dance all night in service 30 hours of extra work for the game and is careful to stay together, and rarely said a word. This approach, of course, most of them, but it was fun to laugh and quick start.
