"It would be mortifying to the feelings of many ladies,
could they be made to understand how little the heart of
man is affected by what is costly or new in their attire;
how little it is biased by the texture of their muslin,
and how unsusceptible of peculiar tenderness towards
the spotted, the sprigged, the mull, or the jackonet.
Woman is fine for her own satisfaction alone.  No man will
admire her the more, no woman will like her the better
for it.  Neatness and fashion are enough for the former,
and a something of shabbiness or impropriety will be most
endearing to the latter."
        Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey
