The Wit and Wisdom of Jane Austen - Edited by Joelle Herr


The Wit and Wisdom of Jane Austen - A charming little treasure trove of quips from our favourite author.

"Wisdom is better than wit, and in the long run will certainly have the laugh on her side" - Jane Austen to her niece Fanny Austen, 1814.

No wiser or wittier words have been spoken than by one of the world's most celebrated writers, Jane Austen.  Nor have her words ever been presented in such an elegant and thoughtful fashion than in this lovely collection.  Covering the timeless topics of happiness, family, fashion, beauty, human nature, society, and, of course, love and marriage, each quip has been curated from Austen's novels and private letters.

If you want to get even more from Jane's wit and impressive tact, you can do so on the go with our pocket-size book What Would Jane Do?.
