Jane Austin, Sense and Sensibility, Chapter 37

"Edward will marry Lucy; he will marry a woman superior in person and understanding to half her sex; and time and habit will teach him to forget that he ever thought another superior to HER."

I wonder if Miss Austen knew anything of statistics, because it's a rather elegant way of calling Lucy a very average woman.
