1 He had done all this for a girl whom he could neither regard nor esteem.
2 He was most highly esteemed by Mr. Darcy, a most intimate, confidential friend.
3 But if I go on, I shall displease you by saying what I think of persons you esteem.
4 She became jealous of his esteem, when she could no longer hope to be benefited by it.
5 This has been my motive, my fair cousin, and I flatter myself it will not sink me in your esteem.
6 Respect, esteem, and confidence had vanished for ever; and all his views of domestic happiness were overthrown.
7 But above all, above respect and esteem, there was a motive within her of goodwill which could not be overlooked.
8 If gratitude and esteem are good foundations of affection, Elizabeth's change of sentiment will be neither improbable nor faulty.
9 I know that you could be neither happy nor respectable, unless you truly esteemed your husband; unless you looked up to him as a superior.
10 Elizabeth had the satisfaction of seeing her father taking pains to get acquainted with him; and Mr. Bennet soon assured her that he was rising every hour in his esteem.
11 Were it for nothing but his love of you, I must always have esteemed him; but now, as Bingley's friend and your husband, there can be only Bingley and yourself more dear to me.
12 I do not know whether I ever before mentioned to you my feelings on this subject; but I will not leave the country without confiding them, and I trust you will not esteem them unreasonable.
13 I will only say farther that from what passed that evening, my opinion of all parties was confirmed, and every inducement heightened which could have led me before, to preserve my friend from what I esteemed a most unhappy connection.
14 She respected, she esteemed, she was grateful to him, she felt a real interest in his welfare; and she only wanted to know how far she wished that welfare to depend upon herself, and how far it would be for the happiness of both that she should employ the power, which her fancy told her she still possessed, of bringing on her the renewal of his addresses.
