-->"''She had always wanted to do every thing, and had made more progress both in drawing and music than many might have done with so little labour as she would ever submit to. She played and sang;—and drew in almost every style; but steadiness had always been wanting; and in nothing had she approached the degree of excellence which she would have been glad to command, and ought not to have failed of. She was not much deceived as to her own skill either as an artist or a musician, but she was not unwilling to have others deceived, or sorry to know her reputation for accomplishment often higher than it deserved."''
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Emma feels this way about Jane Fairfax. Emma is an accomplished young lady, but she could have achieved much more had she been more diligent in her reading, painting or playing the piano and singing. Jane Fairfax knows she's destined to be a governess, so she works harder and accordingly, her performance in music is extraordinary.

-->''"Why she did not like Jane Fairfax might be a difficult question to answer; Mr. Knightley had once told her it was because she saw in her the really accomplished young woman, which she wanted to be thought herself; and though the accusation had been eagerly refuted at the time, there were moments of self-examination in which her conscience could not quite acquit her."''
* GreenEyedepiphany: When Harriet confesses she is in love with Mr. Knightley, it instantly comes over Emma like a thunderclap that ''she'' is in love with him!
-->''"Why was it so much worse that Harriet should be in love with Mr. Knightley, than with Frank Churchill? Why was the evil so dreadfully increased by Harriet’s having some hope of a return? It darted through her, with the speed of an arrow, that Mr. Knightley must marry no one but herself!"''

* GreenEyedMonster: Emma realizes that Jane had to be very jealous of her and that's why she refused her attempts to befriend her and help her when she became ill. Eventhough Jane knew that Frank was only flirting with Emma in order to fool other people into believing he preferred her to conceal their secret relationship, he played it rather too well and took it too far.

-->''"In Jane’s eyes she had been a rival; and well might any thing she could offer of assistance or regard be repulsed. An airing in the Hartfield carriage would have been the rack, and arrowroot from the Hartfield storeroom must have been poison."''

* GreenEyedEpiphany: He's always liked Emma, but he didn't realize how intense his feelings were until he saw her and Frank Churchill together.



* TheJailBaitWait: He tells Emma that he's been in love with her since she was thirteen, at which time he was in his mid-twenties. Given that Regency marriages could easily have a ''fifteen''-year-old bride, it's more surprising that he waited as long as he did to make his feelings known.
* MeaningfulName: Mr. George [[KnightInShiningArmor Knight]]ley. He's generous and attentive towards everyone around him he sends the Bateses his last apples, minds Jane's health better than her secret fiancee does, and dances with Harriet after he witnesses her being publicly snubbed by Elton.

* CondescendingCompassion: She is on the receiving end of it from Mrs Elton. Mrs Elton was charmed by Jane's beauty, her many accomplishments, her talent in music, her what she calls timidity and her life story of an orphaned girl who will likely have to become a governess. Mrs Elton feels superior and tries help her, and because Jane is poor and of less consequence than her wanna-be-mentor, she often has to civilly accept the unwanted attention.
