Birthday Brontë – 200 Years!

Happy 200th Birthday Miss Brontë!
“The truest love that ever heart
 Felt at its kindled core,
Did through each vein, in quickened start,
The tide of being pour ….
I dreamed it would be nameless bliss,
As I loved, loved to be;
And to this object did I press
As blind as eagerly ….
My love has sworn, with sealing kiss,
With me to live – to die
I have at last my nameless bliss:
As I love – loved am I!”
– Rochester’s Song for Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë
“My future husband was becoming to me my whole world; and more than the world: almost my hope of heaven. He stood between me and every thought of religion, as an eclipse intervenes between man and the broad sun. I could not, in those days, see God for His creature: of whom I had made an idol.”
Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë
“‘You have attacked me without provocation: I shall defend myself without apology.’”
Shirley, Charlotte Brontë
“‘I am anchored on a resolve you cannot shake. My heart, my conscience shall dispose of my hand – they only. Know this at last.’”
Shirley, Charlotte Brontë
