What are some quotes about Elizabeth Bennet's growth in Pride and Prejudice?

I am doing a paper on how Elizabeth grew throughout the novel. I can't seem to find any good quotes.

I have found couple of quotes for you. Hope, it will be helpful:

“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.”

“There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.”

“I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine.”

“You must learn some of my philosophy. Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure.”

“Follies and nonsense, whims and inconsistencies do divert me, I own, and I laugh at them whenever I can.”

“She began now to comprehend that he was exactly the man who, in disposition and talents, would most suit her. His understanding and temper, though unlike her own, would have answered all her wishes. It was an union that must have been to the advantage of both: by her ease and liveliness, his mind might have been softened, his manners improved; and from his judgement, information, and knowledge of the world, she must have received benefit of greater importance.”

“She was convinced that she could have been happy with him, when it was no longer likely they should meet.”

“It was gratitude; gratitude, not merely for having once loved her, but for loving her still well enough to forgive all the petulance and acrimony of her manner in rejecting him, and all the unjust accusations accompanying her rejection.”

In case, you require the help with the writing itself or you want to have your work proofread, I may suggest a good online writing service. I will not write its name here, because do not want to be blocked for spamming or so. But in case you need it, you are welcome to ask.
