Oh! I am not at all afraid of her dying. People do not die of little trifling colds. She will be taken good care of. As long as she stays there, it is all very well. I would go and see her if I could have the carriage.
– Jane Austen
Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 7. The incorrigible Mrs. Bennet is dismissive of Jane falling ill after being out in the rain when Mrs. Bennet obliged her to travel on horseback to Netherfield. She is more concerned with Jane getting closes to Mr. Bingley than she is with her daughter’s health. Mrs. Bennet wouldn’t win parent of the year award.
