Intelligence is always powerful. In Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Charlotte Lucas and Elizabeth Bennet are close friends in late 18th century England. Because they both have no fortunes finding a husband is not an easy task for either of them. Instead of bemoaning their fates, both Charlotte and Elizabeth use their positive traits to thrive in unpleasant circumstances. Charlotte uses her intelligence to snag Mr. Collins and Elizabeth uses her sense of humor to remain positive in the face of her mother 's constant nagging. Although Charlotte and Elizabeth have similar problems in their lives, they have distinctive coping methods.
