Jane Eyre




One of my favorite books is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. If you are looking for a book to read this summer and you like romance, adventure and suspense.. it's the book for you!! I'll share with you a few quotes:

“No sight so sad as that of a naughty child," he began, "especially a naughty little girl. Do you know where the wicked go after death?"

"They go to hell," was my ready and orthodox answer.

"And what is hell? Can you tell me that?"

"A pit full of fire."

"And should you like to fall into that pit, and to be burning there for ever?"

"No, sir."

"What must you do to avoid it?"

I deliberated a moment: my answer, when it did come was objectionable: "I must keep in good health and not die.” 
― Charlotte BrontëJane Eyre

“You — you strange — you almost unearthly thing! — I love as my own flesh. You — poor and obscure, and small and plain as you are — I entreat to accept me as a husband.” 
― Charlotte BrontëJane Eyre

“Her coming was my hope each day,
Her parting was my pain;
The chance that did her steps delay
Was ice in every vein.” 
― Charlotte BrontëJane Eyre

“Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! - I have as much soul as you, - and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you!” 
― Charlotte BrontëJane Eyre

  2. Beautiful book!! I've just started to read "Wuthering heights" of her sister Emily: it seems a little bit "dark"..but I think I will love it! And you know what? Maybe I'm very ignorant, but I had NO idea that Charlotte and Emily had another sister, who was also a writer! Did you know anything about her?
    baci baci!
