no rules, no fear

Jocelyn: Sex is messy. Maybe Mrs. Dashwood prefers a more well-ordered life.
Grigg: Maybe that's why she's such a minor character.
Jocelyn: I think if you read Austen's novels...
Girgg: Oh, I have. You wanted me to, and I did.
Jocelyn: I think you'll see she always writes in favor of order and self-control. Nothing unwise.
Grigg: So what, this is a rulebook?

Grigg: I think Colonel Brandon likes Marianne is not because she's young, but because she's generous with herself. She's willing to risk her heart. No rules, no fear.
