For over two hundred years, Elizabeth Bennet has enchanted and inspired readers by being that “obstinate, headstrong girl” willing to stand up to the arrogance and snobbery of her so-called betters. Described by Austen as having a “lively, playful disposition,” Elizabeth embodies the perfect imperfections of strong-willed women everywhere: she is spirited, witty, clever, and loyal. Elizabeth overcomes the obstacles of others’ opinions, not to mention her own flaws, to find a love truly worthy of her—her Mr. Darcy—all with humor and her sparkling charm. Are you too an “obstinate, headstrong girl"? #OmgItsOHG

“I will be calm. I will be mistress of myself.” –Sense & Sensibility

"My idea of good company is the company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation; that is what I call good company." –Persuasion

"If I could not be persuaded into doing what I thought wrong, I will never be tricked into it." –Northanger Abbey
