Elizabeth “Lizzy” Bennet: Dynamic, protagonist, “He is the unlucky to lose your friendship in a way he’s likely to suffer from all his blood.”
Mary Bennet: Flat and Static, “Pride is a very common failing I believe. By all that I have ever read, I am convinced that it is very common indeed, that human nature is particularly prone to it, and that there are very few of us who do not cherish a feeling of self-complacency on the score of some quality or other, real or imaginary. Vanity and pride are two different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”

You had better return to your partner and enjoy her smiles, for you are wasting your time with me.”
Charlotte Lucas: Dynamic and minor character “oh yes, i encourage him to be in his garden as much as possible, and then he has to water rosings nearly every day.”

Lady Catherine de Bourgh: Round and foil. “I always say that nothing is to be done in education without steady and regular instruction, and nobody but a governess can give it.
