James Benwick: a man does not forgeet a woman as readily as you forget us
Anne Elliot: i will not allow a woman’s nature to be more unconstant than a man’s
James Benwick: and yet you will allow that poetry and novels are against you they tell us endlessly of the fickleness of women
Anne Elliot: and are they not all written by men?
James Benwick: yes miss elliot perhaps they are i see we shall not readily agree on this
Anne Elliot: i would never suppose that true constancy is known only by women
