Austen on the incompleteness of our knowledge

February 27, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised or a little mistaken; but where, as in this case, though the conduct is mistaken, the feelings are not, it may not be very material. Mr. Knightley could not impute to Emma a more relenting heart than she possessed or a heart more disposed to accept of his. (Emma, 369)

And, in passing, some lovely sentences, worthy of imitation.
