Today's Quote

Before the house-maid had lit their fire the next day, or the sun gained any power over a cold, gloomy morning in January, Marianne, only half dressed, was kneeling against one of the window-seats for the sake of all the little light she could command from it, and writing as fast as a continual flow of tears would permit her.

Sense and Sensibility

What has occasioned Marianne's writing and tears on this January morning?

Willoughby spurned her the evening before.
Elinor told her about Miss Williams.
