Elinor and Marianne Dashwood are sisters both of which are intelligent, sensitive, charming, and beatiful. In this brilliant story, Jane Austen explores two different ways of thinking, the 'sense' of Elinor and the 'sensibility' of Marianne. Elinor values propriety and common sense; she is prudent and cautious with a strong sense of duty. Marianne, is a wild romantic, never acting or thinking in a moderate way. In their lives full of love and uncertainity, the sisters had to o ercome problems through their own abilities.
