(so so perfect)
Pretty as a picture, 1950s
"'Your examination of Mr Darcy is over, I presume,' said Miss Bingley - 'and pray what is the result?'
‘I am perfectly convinced by it that Mr Darcy has no defect. He owns it himself without disguise.’
‘No’ - said Darcy, ‘I have made no such pretension. I have faults enough, but they are not, I hope, of understanding. My temper I dare not vouch for. It is I believe too little yielding - certainly too little for the convenience of the world. I cannot forget the follies and vices of others so soon as I ought, nor their offences against myself. My feelings are not puffed about with every attempt to move them. My temper would perhaps be called resentful. My good opinion once lost is lost for ever.’
‘That is a failing indeed!’ - cried Elizabeth. ‘Impacable resentment is a shade in a character. But you have chosen your fault well. I really cannot laugh at it. You are safe from me.’
‘There is, I believe, in every disposition a tendency to some particular evil, a natural defect, which not even the best education can overcome.’
‘And your defect is a propensity to hate everybody.’
‘And yours,’ he replied with a smile, ‘is wilfully to misunderstand them.’"
