Jane Austen Quote

I was cleaning out my gmail when I came across and email I sent to myself that contained a partial line from Jane's Juveniliastory Catharine or the Bower.
...for what after all is Youth and Beauty? Why in fact, it is nothing more than being Young and Handsome - and that It is a poor substitute for real worth & Merit;

I think it's great that we have examples of writing by any author that shows the changes they make to works while they are in the process of writing them. I happen to like the line she crossed out and wonder what her reasoning was for crossing it out.
