The Bronze Medal

home  |  February 19th, 2013

What strange creatures brothers are! You would not write to each other but upon the most urgent necessity in the world; and when obliged to take up the pen to say that such a horse is ill, or such a relation dead, it is done in the fewest possible words. You have but one style among you. I know it perfectly.

— 

Jane Austen, Mansfield Park

This passage accurately describes the text message exchanges I have with my brother.
