    from: Pride and Prejudice
    Her resistance had not injured her with the gentleman, and he was thinking of her with some complacency, when thus accosted by Miss Bingley:

    It means that her resistance had not caused him to dislike her.

    Elizabeth Bennet's behaviour has made Mr Darcy take more notice of her and for his opinion of her to improve.

    Her resistance had not injured her
    It seems, for me, like she is to be injured
    This is what I don't quaite understand.

    Darcy had been rather contemptuous of her. Darcy now thinks better of her because she resists the pressure to make her dance and stands by her principles. Her resistance has not impaired her character in his opinion, but on the contrary makes him more approving of her.

    I am not quite sure what you are saying. Does this make it clearer?

    "Her resistance had not injured her [character/reputation] with the gentleman"
