Jane Austen App

How odd that an 18th century author finds her work being promoted and enjoyed via the medium of 21st century technology.

The Jane Austen Centre in Bath has been busy working on a new Jane Austen app which will deliver a witty or meaningful quote from Jane Austen’s novels or letters to your phone every day.

These quotes, compiled over the past 6 months are as relevant to life today as they were in the 18th! Jane Austen speaks of love, marriage and friendship. Here are some examples from the Jane Austen app that may chime with you;

“Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance.” Pride and Prejudice

“I do not like to have people throw themselves away; but everybody should marry as soon as they can do it to advantage.” Mansfield Park

“To flatter and follow others, without being flattered and followed in turn, is but a state of half enjoyment.” Persuasion

“A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony, in a moment.” Pride and Prejudice

“I think very highly of the understanding of all the women in the world — especially of those — whoever they may be — with whom I happen to be in company.” Northanger Abbey

The Jane Austen app is free and can be found at the appstore by searching for ‘Jane Austen Centre’.
