Elizabeth Gaskell: Would any reccomend a good continuation of North and South? 9 30 Jan 14, 2015 09:03PM  
“Margaret was not a ready lover, but where she loved she loved passionately, and with no small degree of jealousy. ”
Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South

“He could not forget the touch of her arms around his neck, impatiently felt as it had been at the time; but now the recollection of her clinging defence of him, seemed to thrill him through and through,—to melt away every resolution, all power of self-control, as if it were wax before a fire.”
Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South

“My dear girl, you don't consent to an abduction! You consent to an elopement, and I knew you wouldn't do that.”
Georgette Heyer, Black Sheep

“Well, He had known what love was-a sharp pang, a fierce experience, in the midst of whose flames he was struggling! but, through that furnace he would fight his way out into the serenity of middle age,-all the richer and more human for having known this great passion.”
Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South

“Indeed! I am truly glad to hear it. I always always fond of Osborne; and, do you know, I never really took to Roger; I respected him and all that, of course. But to compare him with Mr. Henderson! Mr. Henderson is so handsome and well-bred, and gets all his gloves from Houbigant!”
Elizabeth Gaskell, Wives and Daughters
