QUIZ: Is This an Ariana Grande Lyric or a Quote by Jane Austen?

Jane Austen often wrote letters to people in which she said things like “I am sorry to tell you that I am getting very extravagant, and spending all my money,” and “I believe I drank too much wine last night at Hurstbourne,” and “I will not say that your mulberry-trees are dead, but I am afraid they are not alive.”

And if you’re going to sit there and tell me these doesn’t sound like Ariana Grande Instagram captions, well, then you and I have nothing more to talk about. Good day.
