Charlotte Bronte

Look twice before you leap.More Charlotte Bronte [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we would build on a sure foundation in friendship, we must love friends for their sake rather than for our own.More Charlotte Bronte [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Conventionality is not morality. Self-righteousness is not religion. To attack the first is not to assail the last. To pluck the mask from the face of the Pharisee is not to lift an impious hand to the Crown of Thorns.More Charlotte Bronte [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You -- poor and obscure, and small and plain as you are -- I entreat to accept me as a husband.More Charlotte Bronte [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Reason sits firm and holds the reins, and she will not let the feelings burst away and hurry her to wild chasms. The passions may rage furiously, like true heathens, as they are; and the desires may imagine all sorts of vain things: but judgment shall still have the last word in every argument, and the casting vote in every decision.More Charlotte Bronte [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Firm, faithful, and devoted, full of energy and zeal, and truth, he labors for his race; he clears their painful way to improvement; he hews down like a giant the prejudices of creed and caste that encumber it. He may be stern; he may be exacting; he may be ambitious yet; but his is the sternness of the warrior Greatheart, who guards his pilgrim convoy from the onslaught of Apollyon. His is the exaction of the apostle, who speaks but for Christ, when he says, Whosoever will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. His is the ambition of the high master-spirit, which aims to fill a place in the first rank of those who are redeemed from the earth -- who stand without fault before the throne of God, who share the last mighty victories of the Lamb, who are called, and chosen, and faithful.More Charlotte Bronte [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Something of vengeance I had tasted for the first time; as aromatic wine it seemed, on swallowing, warm and racy: its after-flavor, metallic and corroding, gave me a sensation as if I had been poisoned.More Charlotte Bronte [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquillity: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it.More Charlotte Bronte [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A ruffled mind makes a restless pillow.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:49]
Better to be without logic than without feeling.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:53]
Conventionality is not morality.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:06]
I am always easy of belief when the creed pleases me.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:21]
I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:26]
I don't call you handsome, sir, though I love you most dearly: far too dearly to flatter you. Don't flatter me.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:30]
I feel monotony and death to be almost the same.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:35]
I try to avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:39]
I'm just going to write because I cannot help it.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:44]
If all the world hated you, and believed you wicked, while your own conscience approved you, and absolved you from guilt, you would not be without friends.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:48]
If you are cast in a different mould to the majority, it is no merit of yours: Nature did it.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:58]
It is in vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquility: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:04]
It is vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquility; they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:10]
Let your performance do the thinking.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:15]
Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity, or registering wrongs.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:20]
Life is so constructed, that the event does not, cannot, will not, match the expectation.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:26]
Memory in youth is active and easily impressible; in old age it is comparatively callous to new impressions, but still retains vividly those of earlier years.More Charlotte Bronte [10/20/2011 11:10:37]
