I've watched Pride and Prejudice when I was somewhere in between child and teenager. I didn't realize the beauty of it all until recently (two days ago). I started reading the book long before and paused due to the lack of time I made for myself. Reading it again was hard because I had lost track of everything. I'm actually not the type of person who would watch the movie before reading the book. I always make sure to read the book before watching the movie. But in this case, I had to watch the movie first.
Let me just say, I love how in every scene, they were able to tackle serious issues while making its audience feel giddy and light with the random comedic injections. Though the film adaptation isn't as detailed nor alike to the book, both were able to please me in such a way that my heart skips a beat every time Mr. Darcy and Lizzy were alone together (am I spoiling too much?)
I actually "fangirled" about this with my classmates... I just needed to get my feelings out.
And Mr. Darcy, will you go to Prom with me?
...here I go again with them fictional characters
(No song today! Sorry!)
AND A HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE PHOTOGRAPHER: KIM CRUZ! Love you and miss you!
Now let me leave you with a couple of lines from the best book in the world. Peace out!
“Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”
"“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” Elizabeth’s astonishment was beyond expression. She stared, coloured, doubted, and was silent. This he considered sufficient encouragement, and the avowal of all that he felt and had long felt for her, immediately followed. He spoke well, but there were feelings besides those of the heart to be detailed, and he was not more eloquent on the subject of tenderness than of pride. His sense of her inferiority—of its being a degradation—of the family obstacles which judgment had always opposed to inclination, were dwelt on with a warmth which seemed due to the consequence he was wounding, but was very unlikely to recommend his suit." (MR. DARCY PLS)
"I am only resolved to act in that manner, which will, in my own opinion, constitute my happiness, without reference to you, or to any person so wholly unconnected with me." (WOO, GIRL POWER)
