Quote of the Day (Jane Austen, on Resilience)

“There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere.” — English novelist Jane Austen (1775-1817), Mansfield Park (1814)
