A Quote by Jane Austen on comfort, disappointment, and expectations

There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are
all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails,
human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we
make a second better: we find comfort somewhere.

Jane Austen (1775 - 1817)
