QUOTES FROM Matthew MacFadyen CHARACTERS

Elizabeth Bennet says: I wonder who first discovered the power of poetry in driving away love.

Mr. Darcy says: I thought poetry was the food of love.

Elizabeth Bennet says: Of a fine, stout love it may. But if it is only a vague inclination I'm convinced one poor sonnet would kill it stone dead.

Mr. Darcy says: So what do you recommend, to encourage affection?

Elizabeth Bennet says: Dancing. Even if one's partner is barely tolerable.

Mr. Darcy says: You have bewitched me in body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you.

Elizabeth Bennet says: (Playing the piano) You mean to frighten me Mr. Darcy by coming in all your state to hear me. But I won't be alarmed even if your sister does play so well.
