  • I love all of these! They've inspired me to pick up one of the Jane Austen books I have not yet read soon. I especially like the 12th one about disappointments and turning to other ways to be happy and trying again. I am a recent graduate and am searching for a job, which can be discouraging at times but this reminds me that eventually I will find a career that I am happy with as long as I continue to try and not get too discouraged.
