Bingley was endeared to Darcy by the easiness, openness, ductility of his temper, though no disposition could offer a greater contrast to his own, and though with his own he never appeared dissatisfied. On the strength of Darcy’s regard, Bingley had the firmest reliance, and of his judgment the highest opinion. In understanding, Darcy was the superior. Bingley was by no means deficient, but Darcy was clever. He was at the same time haughty, reserved, and fastidious, and his manners, though well-bred, were not inviting. In that respect his friend had greatly the advantage. Bingley was sure of being liked wherever he appeared; Darcy was continually giving offense.

Could you consider… Oh, how hard it is to find words to express one’s deepest feelings. Oh you’re laughing. Look, I know I’m not brilliant with the words… Forgive me. Forgive me, I… I think I might take a walk to that line of trees. Beeches I think. Fagus Sylvatica. The dead leaves stay on the tree all over the winter, did you know that ? Fascinating subject, botany."
