凡是有钱的单身汉,总想娶位太太,这已经成了一条举世公认的真理。这样的单身汉,每逢新搬到一个地方,四邻八舍虽然完全不了解他的性情如何,见解如何,可是,既然这样的一条真理早已在人们心目中根深蒂固,因此人们总是把他看作自己某一个女儿理所应得的一笔财产。

16.There is so much of gratitude or vanity in almost every attachment, that it is not safe. to leave any to itself. We can all begin freely---a slight preference is natural enough; but there are very few of us who have heart enough to be really in love without encouragement. In nine cases out of ten, a woman had better shew more affection than she feels. 男女恋爱大多含有感恩图报和爱慕虚荣的成分,因此听其自然是不保险的。开头可能丢很随便——略有点好感本是很自然地事情,但是很少有人能在没有受到对方鼓励的情况下,而敢于倾心相爱。十有八九,女人流露出来的情意,还有比心里感受的多一些。

Almost from the earliest moments, I have come to feel for you...a passionate admiration and regard. Which despite my struggles, has overcome every rational objection. I beg you, most fervently, to relieve my suffering and consent to be my wife.  
不用说也违背我的理智,我们两家地位悬殊,结亲一定会被严厉谴责,我的理智也无法不这么想,但我没有办法,从我们刚认识开始,我就对你产生了……一份热切的爱幕和感情,尽管不断挣扎,我的理性还是被打败了。我必须热切地恳求你,解除我的痛苦,答应嫁给我。
