True Love

True love shall see through the dark
We shall seek each others hand
In the emptiness darkness brings
I know you are the light
- By Imnas

True Love

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is one of the most famous British novels of all time.

Quotes from the book:

“It seemed as if my tongue pronounced words without my will consenting to their utterance: something spoke out of me over which I had no control. – Jane Eyre (Chapter 4)

Conventionality is not morality. Self-righteousness is not religion. To attack the first is not to assail the last.

“It is not violence that best overcomes hate — nor vengeance that most certainly heals injury.” – Chapter 6

“What a singularly deep impression her injustice seems to have made on your heart… Would you not be happier if you tried to forget her severity, together with the passionate emotions it excited? Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity, or registering wrongs.” – Helen to Jane Chapter 6

And my favorite…

“I don’t think, sir, that you have a right to command me, merely because you are older than I, or because you have seen more of the world than I have; your claim to superiority depends on the use you have made of your time and experience.” – Jane to Mr. Rochester

    i encountered this quote in the late 80s, the epigraph of John Irving’s Cider House Rules. since then, I’ve claimed it as my article of faith.
