E questo più o meno riassume tutto quello che avrei da dire.
"More than seven years were gone since this little history of sorrowful interest had reached its close.Persuasion, Jane Austen.
She hoped to be wise and reasonable in time, but alas, alas, she must confess to herself that she was not wise yet.
She had used him ill. Deserted and disappointed him, and worse, she had shown a feebleness of character in doing so
which his own decided, confident temper could not endure.
She had given him up to oblige others.
She had been forced into prudence in her youth.
She learned romance as she grew older; the natural sequence to an unnatural beginning."
