Quoting thehandsom

(I read the book, watched the movie several times and still strying to figure out the ´moral of the story´ ) 

 

 How about: Proud and prejudicial characteristics get one  nowhere in the love stakes, especially if one listen´s to hearsay .  

 

 Phew . . . Elizabeth almost missed out on her destiny . . . the love of a fine figure of a man in breeches.

 

Of course, if you had done your research more thoroughly, you would have also read and watched Bridget Jones´s Diary and realised the modern  moral: Never let a cad twang your big knickers.

 

 

Colin Firth took the role of Darcy in both stories. For those of you who don´t know who he is, he seems to be "the thinking woman´s crumpet".  Something for you to aspire to Thehandsom?
