True Love

“With so much true merit and true love, and no want of fortune and friends, the happiness of the married cousins must appear as secure as earthly happiness can be. Equally formed for domestic life, and attached to country pleasures, their home was the home of affection and comfort” (on the marriage of Edmund Bertram and Fanny Price, from Mansfield Park by Jane Austen, Chapter XLVIII).
