"Wherever you are is my home — my only home."
"I can live alone, if self-respect, and circumstances require me so to do. I need not sell my soul to buy bliss. I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all extraneous delights should be withheld, or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give."
"It is madness in all women to let a secret love kindle within them, which, if unreturned and unknown, must devour the life that feeds it."
"The eagerness of a listener quickens the tongue of a narrator"
Jane Eyre (via thereadersjournal)
