Pride and Prejudice

Mr, Darcy: Miss Elizabeth. I have struggled in vain and can bear it no longer. These past months have been a torment. I came to Rosings only to see you. I have fought against judgment, my family's expectation, the inferioritY of your birth, my rank. I will put them aside and ask you to end my agony.
Miss Elizabeth : I don 't understand.
Mr. Darcy: I love you. Most ardently. Please do me the honour of accepting my hand.
Miss Elizabeth: 'Sir, I appreciate the struggle you have been through, and I am very sorry to have caused you pain. It was unconsciously done.
