When was the begining?

ELIZABETH'S spirits soon rising to playfulness again, she wanted Mr. Darcy to account for his having ever fallen in love with her. ``How could you begin?'' said she. ``I can comprehend your going on charmingly, when you had once made a beginning; but what could set you off in the first place?''
``I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.''


Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Isto para mim é a definição de se apaixonar, quando nós não paramos de pensar na pessoa e então damos conta que nos apaixonámos, mas não sabemos bem quando. <3

Eva, concordo claro. É nestas pequenas coisas que se vê o brilhantismo da Jane Austen.
