"I do not want people to be very agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them a great deal."
Jane Austen (December 16 1775 – July 18 1817) is an English novelist who recorded the domestic manners of the landed gentry. She is known for her classically understated style and sly, ironic humour. Some of her famous works include Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), and Persuasion (1818) - her last completed novel.
