"Governments & fashions come and go but Jane Eyre is for all time." -Jasper Fforde

 "Because," he said, "I sometimes have a queer feeling with regard to you — especially when you are near to me, as now: it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame. And if that boisterous Channel, and two hundred miles or so of land, come broad between us, I am afraid that cord of communion will be snapped; and then I've a nervous notion I should take to bleeding inwardly."  -Charlotte Brontë, Jane 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!" -Charlote Brontë, Jane Eyre

"I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will." -Charlote Brontë, Jane Eyre
