    You are my one and only, for all eternity.
    Vicky Dreiling, How to Marry a Duke

    It is unforgivable that men and women who have worked the land and served us for generations should be so bewildered and fearful, because of laws made to accommodate the greed of others," Darcy said, "Laws are meant to make the lives of citizens better, not worse.
