Edmund Bertram: Eton then Oxford

"I have not yet left Oxford long enough to forget what chapel prayers are."

"At Oxford I have been a good deal used to have a man lean on me for the length of a street, and you are only a fly in the comparison."

Henry Crawford: Westminster then Cambridge

"My plan was laid at Westminster, a little altered, perhaps, at Cambridge, and at one-and-twenty executed."

Edward Ferrars goes to Oxford because he has nothing better to do (then drops out to marry Lucy).

"I was therefore entered at Oxford and have been properly idle ever since."

George Wickham: Cambridge

"My father supported him at school, and afterwards at Cambridge—most important assistance, as his own father, always poor from the extravagance of his wife, would have been unable to give him a gentleman’s education."

Henry Tilney, John Thorpe, James Morland and John Allen all go to Oxford.

"I have heard that there is a great deal of wine drunk in Oxford."

"Oxford! There is no drinking at Oxford now, I assure you. Nobody drinks there. You would hardly meet with a man who goes beyond his four pints at the utmost. Now, for instance, it was reckoned a remarkable thing, at the last party in my rooms, that upon an average we cleared about five pints a head. It was looked upon as something out of the common way. Mine is famous good stuff, to be sure. You would not often meet with anything like it in Oxford—and that may account for it. But this will just give you a notion of the general rate of drinking there."

"Yes, it does give a notion," said Catherine warmly, "and that is, that you all drink a great deal more wine than I thought you did. However, I am sure James does not drink so much."

Cambridge sounds like a much better prospect. At least you get things done there, whereas at Oxford you just pray, get drunk, have random men leaning on you on the street and make bad marriage choices.

Get To Know Me→ Actors [1/7]: Cary Grant

"It’s important to know where you’ve come from so that you can know where you’re going. I probably chose my profession because I was seeking approval, adulation, admiration and affection."

germylf1:

"A lot of people probably wouldn’t put us together in terms of how they might see us but I can’t say a bad word about what Flavio’s done with me. He’s been incredibly loyal and has always boxed my corner when needed. I don’t talk to him often, to be honest, but his last goal was to get me the Ferrari seat, which was very close. Even up to a few months ago he was still pushing very hard, but by that time I had made my decision. I was disappointed about Singapore ‘08 and how that was played out but I can only take on what he’s done with me and he’s always been straight up and down and extremely consistent."
