It was a large, handsome, stone building, standing well on rising ground, and backed by a ridge of high woody hills;—and in front, a stream of some natural importance was swelled into greater, but without any artificial appearance. Its banks were neither formal, nor falsely adorned. Elizabeth was delighted. She had never seen a place where nature had done more, or where natural beauty had been so little counteracted by an awkward taste.
“You are mistaken, Mr. Darcy, if you suppose that the mode of your declaration affected me in any other way, than as it spared the concern which I might have felt in refusing you, had you behaved in a more gentlemanlike manner.” (Elizabeth Bennett) ― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
Si sus sentimientos siguen siendo los mismos dígamelo, mi afecto y deseos no han cambiado, pero una sola palabra suya me silenciará para siempre. Sin embargo, si sus sentimientos han cambiado debo decirle que ha embrujado usted mi cuerpo y mi alma, y que la amo, la amo y la amo y que ya nada podrá separarme de usted.
