"As for Mr. Woodhouse, whose most famous sentences hang like texts in frames on the four walls of our memories, he is, next to Don Quixote, perhaps the most perfect gentleman in fiction; and under outrageous provocation he remains so."
— Bradley, A.C. (1851-1935)
'That young man (speaking lower) is very thoughtless. Do not tell his father, but that young man is not quite the thing. He has been opening the doors very often this evening, and kee ing them open very inconsiderately. He does not think o' the draught. I do not mean to set you against him, but indeed he is not quite the thing.'
