Do you agree with this statement?
In Chapter 14 of Austen's Northanger Abbey, the author says, "Where people wish to attach, they should always be ignorant. To come with a well-informed mind is to come with an inability of administering to the vanity of others, which a sensible person would always wish to avoid. A woman especially, if she have the misfortune of knowing anything, should conceal it as well as she can."
What do you think of Austen's statement? (I personally agree with the part about the well-informed being stubborn, but my opinion differs on the part where she says a woman should conceal what she knows.)
