We promise not to meddle in your lives or try any matchmaking here – but we are going to announce the winner of the $10 iTunes Gift Card – Random Number Generator selected Maggie Brown – Commenter #1 for her insightful comments on Robin Hood.  Thanks Maggie!  I’ll email you with the details.

Now back to the village of Highbury for one of our favorite quotes from Emma.  We would love to know your favorite part of the story, or any blunders of your own from not having all the information.

I thank you; but I assure you, you are quite mistaken.  Mr. Elton and I are very good friends, and nothing more, and she walked on, amusing herself in the consideration of the blunders which often arise from a partial knowledge of circumstances, of the mistakes which people of high pretensions to judgment are for every falling into.
