Jane Eyre

By Charlotte Bronte QUOTATION: Reader, I married him.
ATTRIBUTION: Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855), British novelist. Jane, in Jane Eyre, ch. 38 (1847).

QUOTATION: Consistency, madam, is the first of Christian duties.
ATTRIBUTION: Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855), British novelist. Mr. Brocklehurst, in Jane Eyre, ch. 4 (1847).

QUOTATION: You—poor and obscure, and small and plain as you are—I entreat to accept me as a husband.
ATTRIBUTION: Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855), British novelist. Mr. Rochester, in Jane Eyre, ch. 23 (1847).

QUOTATION: If you are cast in a different mould to the majority, it is no merit of yours: Nature did it.
ATTRIBUTION: Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855), British novelist. Jane Eyre, ch. 14 (1847).

QUOTATION: Feeling without judgement is a washy draught indeed; but judgement untempered by feeling is too bitter and husky a morsel for human deglutition.
ATTRIBUTION: Charlotte Brontë (1816–55), British novelist. Jane Eyre, ch. 21 (1847).

QUOTATION: It is vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquillity: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it.
ATTRIBUTION: Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855), British novelist. Jane Eyre, ch. 12 (1847).

QUOTATION: Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilized by education; they grow there, firm as weeds among stones.
ATTRIBUTION: Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855), British novelist. Jane Eyre, ch. 29 (1847).

QUOTATION: Something of vengeance I had tasted for the first time; as aromatic wine it seemed, on swallowing, warm and racy: its after- flavour, metallic and corroding, gave me a sensation as if I had been poisoned.
ATTRIBUTION: Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855), British novelist. Jane Eyre, ch. 4 (1847).

QUOTATION: Conventionality is not morality. Self-righteousness is not religion. To attack the first is not to assail the last. To pluck the mask from the face of the Pharisee is not to lift an impious hand to the Crown of Thorns.
ATTRIBUTION: Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855), British novelist. Jane Eyre, Preface (1847).

QUOTATION: One does not jump, and spring, and shout hurrah! at hearing one has got a fortune, one begins to consider responsibilities, and to ponder business; on a base of steady satisfaction rise certain grave cares, and we contain ourselves, and brood over our bliss with a solemn brow.
ATTRIBUTION: Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855), British novelist. Jane Eyre, ch. 33 (1847).
