"Perfect in being much too short"

That's a quote from Emma, by Jane Austen about a picnic. Not sure why it keeps rattling around in my brain - I read the book many years ago for an English Literature class and I don't remember liking it all that much.

And the whole idea of the attractiveness of under delivering seems very foreign and old fashioned. These days there's always room for ten more pages to a presentation or one more thing to cram into a day.

What were they thinking to have us read such stuff?
