Daily Dose

From Emma, by Jane Austen


"Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her."

From Book One, Chapter One (to mark the 300 anniversary of the novel's publication.)
