I am perfectly convinced by it that Mr. Darcy has no defect. He owns it himself without disguise.

– Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 11. Elizabeth says this to Mr. Darcy, after Caroline Bingley asks what is the result of her examination of him. Elizabeth aims an ironic jab at Darcy in this quote. By saying that he owns the fact that he has no defect, she is accusing him of a defect: arrogance.
