"But, Lizzy, you look as if you did not enjoy it. You are not going to be missish, I hope, and pretend to be affronted at an idle report. For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?" 

   "Oh!" cried Elizabeth, "I am excessively diverted. But it is so strange!"

Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 57
