Friendship and Loss

The Jane Austen Font is based on the author's handwriting.

"Friendship is certainly the finest balm for the pangs of disappointed love"
-Jane Austen , Northanger Abbey

"Could fulfillment ever be felt as deeply as loss? Romantically she decided that love must surely reside in the gap between desire and fulfillment, in the lack,not the contentment. Love was the ache, the anticipation, the retreat, everything around it but the emotion itself."
- Kiran Desai, The Inheritance of Loss
