Let us then, as you say, live in the real world, where men of course always reject a girl with a pretty face in favor of one with a well-informed mind. Oh, no no no, I bow to your superior knowledge, your sixteen years' more experience. You must know best. Harriet, with her good looks and her easy temperament will be right at the back of the queue with your sex when it comes to choosing a mate. Now, we have both made our argument. Let us not quarrel.
~Emma Woodhouse, Emma (2009)
