Mansfield Park

Miss Crawford:And besides, Miss Bertram is engaged. Remember that, my dear brother. Her choice is made.

Henry Crawford:Yes, and I like her the better for it. An engaged woman is always more agreeable than a disengaged. She is satisfied with herself. Her cares are over, and she feels that she may exert all her powers of pleasing without suspicion. All is safe with a lady engaged: no harm can be done.


Edmund Bertram: [to Fanny Price] Surely you and I are beyond speaking when words are clearly not enough.
