“Generosity without delicacy, like wit without judgement, generally gives as much pain as pleasure.”
Frances Burney, Evelina

“She [Evelina] is not, indeed, like most modern young ladies; to be known in half an hour; her modest worth, and fearful excellence, require both time and encouragement to show themselves.”
