There was so little left to be done after he arrived at the preparation for the tea, that he was almost sorry the obligation of eating and drinking came so soon to prevent his watching Margaret. She handed him his cup of tea with the proud air of an unwilling slave; but her eye caught the moment when he was ready for another cup; and he almost longed to ask her to do for him what he saw her compelled to do for her father, who took her little finger and thumb in his masculine hand, and made them serve as sugar-tongs.

❝ Let her go - with her stony heart, and her beauty - how set and terrible her look is now, for all her loveliness of feature! She is afraid I shall speak what will require some stern repression. Let her go. Beauty and heiress as she may be, she will find it hard to meet with a truer heart than mine. Let her go! ❞

Margaret Hale: It offends me that you should speak to me as if it were your duty to rescue my reputation!
John Thornton: I spoke to you about my feelings because I love you! I had no thought for your reputation.
Margaret Hale: You think that because you are rich and my father is in reduced circumstances, that you can have me for your possession. Well, I suppose I should expect no less from someone in trade!
John Thornton: I don’t want to possess you! I wish to marry you because I love you.
