1 Nothing could console and nothing could appease her.
2 An excellent consolation in its way," said Elizabeth, "but it will not do for us.
3 It was consoling that he should know she had some relations for whom there was no need to blush.
4 Nor was Darcy's vindication, though grateful to her feelings, capable of consoling her for such discovery.
5 Mary, however, continued to console herself with such kind of moral extractions from the evil before them.
6 This was not very consoling to Mrs. Bennet, and therefore, instead of making any answer, she went on as before.
7 Lydia's going to Brighton was all that consoled her for her melancholy conviction of her husband's never intending to go there himself.
8 Let me then advise you, dear sir, to console yourself as much as possible, to throw off your unworthy child from your affection for ever, and leave her to reap the fruits of her own heinous offense.

14 When he was gone, they were certain at least of receiving constant information of what was going on, and their uncle promised, at parting, to prevail on Mr. Bennet to return to Longbourn, as soon as he could, to the great consolation of his sister, who considered it as the only security for her husband's not being killed in a duel.
