Jane Austen was an English author, she was often regarded as being one of the greatest writers from the U. K. Though she lived a rather short life in terms of years (1775-1817), she managed to write six highly influential novels that have only grown in popularity since her passing. Almost always writing with a sense of humour and irony, she often illuminated the restricted role of women during her time. Though it has been 200 years since she passed, her influence on present and future generations still is increasing!


In this article we’ve compiled ten endearing quotes on love which she wrote either in her novels or letters, enjoy:

The course of true love never did run smooth.
Jane Austen

Friendship is certainly the finest balm for the pangs of disappointed love.
Jane Austen

Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure.
Jane Austen

There are very few of us who have heart enough to be really in love without encouragement.
Jane Austen

A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony, in a moment.
Jane Austen

I have been used to consider poetry as the FOOD of love.
Jane Austen

If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more.
Jane Austen

Tenderness of heart

There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart.
Jane Austen

When I fall in love, it will be forever.
Jane Austen

The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!
Jane Austen

I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone, I think and plan. Have you not seen this? Can you fail to have understood my wishes? I had not waited even these ten days, could I have read your feelings, as I think you must have penetrated mine. I can hardly write. I am every instant hearing something which overpowers me. You sink your voice, but I can distinguish the tones of that voice when they would be lost on others. Too good, too excellent creature! You do us justice, indeed. You do believe that there is true attachment and constancy among men. Believe it to be most fervent, most undeviating, in F. W.
I must go, uncertain of my fate; but I shall return hither, or follow your party, as soon as possible. A word, a look, will be enough to decide whether I enter your father’s house this evening or never.
Jane Austen
