Sense and Sensibility: Jane Austen

Jane Austen, one of my favorite writers, began writing as a child, did it for her family. Some of his early works, written since 1790, were published in the book Love and Friendship in 1922.

Her great works include Sense and Sensibility (1811), story of two sisters and their love affairs, Pride and Prejudice (1813), his most famous novel, chronicles the relationships of the five Bennett sisters and their search for a suitable husband; The Northanger Abbey (1818), a satire on the Gothic novels so popular in the late eighteenth century, Mansfield Park (1814), Emma (1816) and Persuasion (1818).

Personally my favorite is Pride and Prejudice, do not know how I laughed with the lifestyle of the mother and how moved me the patience and love of Mr. Bennet. The only novel that I have not got yet is Mansfield Park, is actually a little hard to get, but I’ll keep trying.

But back to my novel in question, I would say that this novel evaluates and analyzes the lifestyle and the rules and laws that are used to in British society in the nineteenth century.
The whole story takes place in an English town and tells the adventures, dreams, loves, qualities, strengths, penalties and how approach life the sisters Elinor and Marianne Dashwood, who live with her mother Mrs. Dashwood and her younger sister, Margaret. After the death of their father the family estate passed to his half-brother John Dashwood, the only male offspring and son from his first marriage, the family is left with almost nothing and moved to a house in the field that provides a relative.

Because these sisters are very different, each has a different way of dealing with life: Elinor does so with seriousness and decorum while Marianne unleashes thrilling.
Elinor examine very well the situation before making a decision, before getting involved romantically. Her decisions put the safety and welfare of her mother and sister. Always look for what she thinks is best for both, although she has to sacrifice.

Instead Marianne believes that life must be lived as it comes, live for the moment, she likes to learn new things, new people, experience, dance, loves music and loves to read. Read a lot and would like to introduce herself into every of those wonderful worlds found in her books.

The lives of both sisters will change with a sudden invitation to London, where surprises will teach them some lessons that can never forget. Lessons that will allow each of them, to analyze things from the viewpoint of the other. They experience both romance and heartbreak and meet three men: Edward Ferrars, Willoughby and Colonel Brandon, who will change their lives.

Well I do not tell you more, read it, is beautiful, you do not regret.

I leave you images of the film adaptation …

Sentido y sensibilidad: Jane Austen

Jane Austen, una de mis escritoras favoritas, empezó a escribir desde niña, lo hacía para su familia. Algunos de sus primeros trabajos, escritos desde 1790, se publicaron en el libro Amor y amistad en 1922.

Sus grandes creaciones son: Sentido y sensibilidad (1811), historia de dos hermanas y sus asuntos amorosos; Orgullo y prejuicio (1813), su novela más famosa, relata las relaciones de las cinco hermanas Bennett y su búsqueda de un marido adecuado; La abadía de Northanger (1818), una sátira sobre las novelas góticas tan populares a finales del siglo XVIII; Mansfield Park (1814), Emma (1816) y Persuasión (1818).

En lo personal mis favoritas son Orgullo y prejuicio, no saben como me reí con la forma de ser de la madre y como me conmovió la paciencia y el amor del Sr. Bennet. La única novela que me hace falta es la de Mansfield Park, es en verdad un poco difícil de conseguir, pero lo seguiré intentando.

Pero volviendo a nuestra novela en cuestión, les diré que esta novela trata, evalúa y analiza el estilo de vida y las normas y leyes que se acostumbraban en la sociedad británica en el siglo diecinueve.

Toda la historia tiene lugar en un pueblo inglés, y nos narra las aventuras, los sueños, los amores, las cualidades, fortalezas, las penas y la forma en que toman la vida las hermanas Elinor y Marianne Dashwood, quienes viven con su madre la Sra. Dashwood y su hermana menor, Margaret. Después de la muerte de su padre el patrimonio familiar pasa a su medio hermano, John Dashwood, único descendiente masculino e hijo de un primer matrimonio; la familia queda con casi nada y se muda a una casita en el campo que les ofrece un familiar.

Pues estas hermanas son muy diferentes, cada una de ellas tiene un modo diferente de enfrentarse a la vida: Elinor lo hace con seriedad y decoro mientras Marianne da rienda suelta a sus emocionantes.
Elinor analiza bien la situación que se le presenta antes de tomar una decisión, antes de involucrarse sentimentalmente. Sus decisiones anteponen la seguridad y bienestar de su madre y hermana. Siempre verá por lo que considera mejor para ambas, aunque ella misma tenga que sacrificarse.

En cambio Marianne considera que la vida hay que vivirla como viene, vivir el momento, le gusta conocer cosas nuevas, gente nueva, experimentar, bailar, la música le encanta y le fascina leer. Lee mucho y le gustaría que su lectura la condujera a todos y cada uno de esos mundos maravillosos que se encuentra en sus libros.

La vida de ambas hermanas cambiará con una repentina invitación a Londres, donde tendrán sorpresas que les enseñarán algunas lecciones que jamás podrán olvidar. Lecciones que les permitirán a cada una de ellas, analizar las cosas desde el punto de vista de la otra. Allí experimentan tanto el romance como una desilusión amorosa y conocen a tres hombres: Edward Ferrars, Willoughby y al Coronel Brandon, quienes cambiarán sus vidas.

Bueno ya no les cuento más, léanla, es hermosa no se arrepentirán, les dejo imágenes de su adaptación al cine…

Remember me

How you want to be remembered?

Today I want to talk about a film I have seen, which I would buy as soon as it comes out on DVD, whose protagonist is no other than my beloved vampire Robert Pattinson. The film is called remember me and verily I say, is beautiful. The plot is great, scenarios, characters, very natural, quite ordinary.

Our daily life can be back monotone, we wake up, do duties, tasks and commitments with the family, take the children to extra curricular activities, etc. Well that is all very well, but that we must not do is to stay locked in a vicious cycle. For any reason we forget that we are living, that our life is provided and that this “I love you”, which by apathy not told our children, our husband, maybe we do not have another chance to do so.

Life is today, today we love, today we laugh, we must now embrace, today we must do what we always wanted to make. We cannot put a brake to our dreams, our concerns about the fact that maybe won’t be well seen by others, maybe I will point out, maybe they dislike. As I say, what matters, do it, do not let it as simple ideas, get them real and see what happens.

You want to celebrate, do it, look no reasons, you want to do pink biscuits with your child, do it, go out with your family, leverages the moments that are together, live them, love them. Do things that seem insignificant, you do not mind.

Gandhi said:

Everything we do in this life will be insignificant… but it is very important to do so.

It is truth, by simple action that we think we should do it, because really the most beautiful moments of life, that we enjoy most, the most remembered, always be small details, simple, insignificant things.

Synopsis:

Remember me is about the tragic drama of a family that begins to break down after the suicide of one of his sons.
However, the remaining son (Pattinson) does not despair to fall in love and is then when he met a young woman who has witnessed the suicide of his mother. For all the family misfortunes, fight for their love story to work.

I would like to conclude with the following quote from Robert Pattinson:

I can’t remember who said it, but a soul and a heaven must exist because good people aren’t rewarded enough on Earth. I always liked that idea, if that makes sense.

See you soon XOXOXO…

La Cabaña: Éxito #1 del New York Times

Hoy les voy a platicar acerca de un libro que me regalaron para navidad y que me ha encantado. Aún no lo termino pero les puedo contar que es excelente, es un libro que no debe faltar en nuestra biblioteca o en nuestra base de datos, es una invitación para encontrarnos a nosotros mismos, parar y analizar el camino por donde vamos y de ser necesario corregirlo. Nos invita a conocernos realmente, a perdonarnos, a evaluar en que momento de nuestro camino perdimos la fé. ¿Porqué la perdimos, quién o que evento contribuyó a que perdiéramos la fe, no sólo en dios, sino en nosotros mismos.

Es muy fácil criticar a dios, reprocharle porqué no salen las cosas, nuestros planes, como nosotros queremos y cuando nosotros queremos. Pero la realidad es que todo tiene su razón de ser, si no se dieron determinados resultados es porque no era el tiempo para ello. Dios nos guía y está junto a nosotros durante toda nuestra trayectoria en esta vida. Lo que sucede es que nos olvidamos de él, olvidamos que en cada paso logrado, en cada triunfo, en cada fracaso, él está presente, él es quien ha hecho posible que ocurra y no nosotros.

Les dejo la sinopsis:

La hija menor de Mackenzie Allen Phillips, Missy, es raptada durante unas vacaciones familiares, y se encuentran evidencias de que pudo haber sido brutalmente asesinada en una cabaña abandonada en lo más profundo de los bosques de Óregon. Cuatro años después, en medio de su gran tristeza, Mack recibe una sospechosa nota, al parecer procedente de Dios, invitándolo a regresar a esa cabaña durante un fin de semana.
Contra cada razón, Mack llega una tarde de invierno para retornar a su más oscura pesadilla. Lo que encuentra ahí cambiará su vida para siempre.

En un mundo donde la religión parece cada vez más irrelevante, La Cabaña aborda la inmemorial pregunta: “¿Dónde está dios en un mundo de indescriptible dolor?” Las respuestas que Marck obtiene te sorprenderán, y quizá te transformen tanto como a él. ¡Querrás que todas las personas que conoces lean este libro¡

Si algo importa, todo importa. Dado que tú eres importante, todo lo que haces es importante. Cada vez que perdonas, el universo cambia; cada vez que te esfuerzas y tocas un corazón o una vida, el mundo cambia, con cada bondad y favor, visto o no, mis propósitos se cumplen, y nada volverá a ser lo mismo.

Wm. Paul Young

Al principio estaba intrigada por la premisa del libro, y cuando empecé a leer, me sentí atraída por las dudas en la lucha emocional de Mack, el personaje principal, así que continué, pero mientras seguía leyendo, me encontré a mi misma argumentando sobre las cosas que se estaban exponiendo. ¿Cómo íntimamente Dios nos quiere conocer y cómo quiere participar en nuestras vidas?
Este libro es muy motivador y espiritual, así como fuente de inspiración. La bella escritura de este autor es más de lo que podía imaginar. Me encanta leer este libro y tengo que decir a todos aquellos que no lo piensen tanto y que sólo lo LEAN! y tendrán un concepto completamente nuevo de la vida junto con una mejor comprensión en su caminar con Dios.

Excelente libro.

Nos vemos en la próxima…

The Shack: The #1 New York Times Bestseller

Today I’m going to talk about a book that my niece gave me for Christmas, and that I loved since got it. Not yet over but I can tell you that is excellent, is a book that should be present in our library or our database, is an invitation to find ourselves, stop and analyze our path and if necessary correct it.

It invites us to really know ourselves, to forgive, to assess at what point in our way we lost the faith. Why we lost, who or what event helped us to lose faith not only in God but in ourselves.
It is very easy to criticize God, criticize why things or our plans go wrong, why do not happen as we want and when we want. But the reality is that everything has its rationale, if there were not certain results is because it was not the time for it. God guides us and is with us throughout our journey in this life. What happens is that we forget it, forget that in every step made, in every triumph, every failure, he is present, and he is who has made it possible to happen and not us.

Synopsis:

The Shack is a book that seeks to provide answers to the always timely question “Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?”. It is a tale that revolves around Mack (Mackenzie) Philips, whose daughter was abducted during a family vacation. Though her body was never found, evidence was found in an abandoned shack to prove that she had been brutally murdered. Mack visits the scene of the crime and there experiences a weekend-long encounter with God, or, more properly, with the Godhead.

At first I was intrigued by the premise of the book, and as I began to read, I was certainly drawn in by the emotional struggle Mack, the main character, goes through, but as I continued to read, I found myself arguing with the things that were being espoused. How intimately God wants to know us and be involved in our lives.

This book is very spiritually motivating as well as inspiring. The beautiful writing from this author is more than you could imagine. I love reading this book and I must say to all those that thought about reading this book JUST READ IT! and you’ll have a whole new out look on life with a better understanding in your walk with God.

Excellent book.

See you next…
