Tenderness of Heart

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

“There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart,” said she afterwards to herself. “There is nothing to be compared to it. Warmth and tenderness of heart, with an affectionate, open manner, will beat all the clearness of head in the world, for attraction, I am sure it will… I have it not—but I know how to prize and respect it….”

- Jane Austen, Emma, 1816
