Quotes: Resolutions.

Resolution 343 Marianne: "I mean never to be later in rising than six, and from that time till dinner I shall divide every moment between music and reading…have formed my plan and am determined to enter on a course of serious study…by reading only six hours a day I shall gain in the course of a twelvemonth a great deal of instruction which I now feel myself to want." Austen, Sense and Sensibility.

Resolution 347 Marianne: "As for Willoughby—to say that I shall soon or that I shall ever forget him, would be idle; his remembrance can be overcome by no change of circumstances or opinions but it shall be regulated, it shall be checked by religion, by reason, by constant employment." Austen, Sense and Sensibility.
