You must be the best judge of your own happiness. Emma

If my opinions are wrong, I must correct them. The Watsons

To be guided by second-hand conjecture is pitiful. Northanger Abbey

Keep your breath to cool your porridge. Pride and Prejudice

You should never fret about trifles. Northanger Abbey

What is right to be done cannot be done too soon. Emma

It is the bounden duty of the capable to let no opportunity of being useful escape them. Sanditon

Where a man does his best with only moderate powers, he will have the advantage over negligent superiority. Emma
