♫ Rest you then, rest, sad eyes. Melt not in weeping. While she lies sleeping. Softly, softly, now softly. Softly lies sleeping ♫
Frances O’Connor as Fanny Price in Mansfield Park (1999).
“But I hate to hear you talking so like a fine gentleman, and as if women were all fine ladies, instead of rational creatures. We none of us expect to be in smooth water all our days.”
- Jane Austen, Persuasion
