examples/quotes from the text Mrs. Dashwood (mother of Elinor, Marianne and Margaret): She's kind of a silly woman – she's sweet and loving, and is a pretty good mom when it comes to coddling her daughters, but overall, she's not the most pragmatic of ladies. John Dashwood (stepson of Mrs. Dashwood and her late husband): John isn't completely bad at heart; he does seem to have some genuine affection for his sisters, since he's always happy to see them, and in his own way, he wants to make sure they end up OK. Fanny Dashwood (wife of John Dashwood): Fanny is totally a snob and a half. She basically only wants to associate with people richer or more important than she is. Elinor: Elinor is the voice of common sense in this crazy clan of excitable, romantic women, and we're not sure what would happen to them without her. Marianne: Marianne is all about sensibility – that is to say, she's all about passion . She doesn't really think before she acts, and she believes firmly that one should be directed by feelings, not logic. Mrs. Jennings: Mrs. Jennings generally has the best of intentions, even if she unwittingly puts her foot in her mouth all the time. She loves gossip, and she loves to tease her friends with the things she knows.
