It is truth universally  acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. (Published 1813)




I love the classics and plan to share some "opening lines" over the coming months. Comment if you like, or read for inspiration. Writing styles were different then, but were they really?

  3. That opening line is great even for today considering how many young women marry very old, but rich, men

"Stay" is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary
(A.B. Alcott). Stay and visit awhile. Your comments mean a lot to me.
