[Quotes] Jane Eyre: Reader, I Married Him.

Jane Eyre is a novel by English writer Charlotte Brontë, published under the pen name “Currer Bell”, on 1847. Jane Eyre follows the experiences of its heroine of the same name, including her growth to adulthood and her love for Mr. Rochester, the brooding master of Thornfield Hall. The novel revolutionized prose fiction by being the first to focus on its protagonist’s moral and spiritual development through an intimate first-person narrative, where actions and events are colored by a psychological intensity. Charlotte Brontë has been called the “first historian of the private consciousness”, and the literary ancestor of writers like Proust and Joyce.



Today we have collected some insightful quotes from Jane Eyre: 💡

I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.

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.

Some of the best people that ever lived have been as destitute as I am; and if you are a Christian, you ought not to consider poverty a crime.



I had not intended to love him; the reader knows I had wrought hard to extirpate from my soul the germs of love there detected; and now, at the first renewed view of him, they spontaneously revived, great and strong! He made me love him without looking at me.

If all the world hated you and believed you wicked, while your own conscience approved of you and absolved you from guilt, you would not be without friends.

There is no happiness like that of being loved by your fellow-creatures, and feeling that your presence is an addition to their comfort.



I ask you to pass through life at my side—to be my second self, and best earthly companion.
