Captain Wentworth: But, if I am to speak in earnest, what I desire above all in a wife is firmness of character. A woman who knows her own mind. I can not abide timidity or feebleness of purpose. A weak spirit which is always open to persuasion, first one way, and than the other, can never be relied upon. 
Persuasion, 2007
