“An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth. From this day you must be a stranger to one of your parents. – Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and I will never see you again if you do.”
- Mr. Bennet to Lizzie Bennet
Jane Austen

One of my favorite scenes from Pride and Prejudice. It perfectly captures how much Lizzie is loved by her father.
Pride & Prejudice will forever be one of my favorite books. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read it and will no doubt read many more.
