The Friday Five: Jane Eyre Edition

To celebrate Charlotte Bronte's upcoming birthday, we give you some of our favorite quotes from one of literature's most beloved heroines.


Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilised by education: they grow there, firm as weeds among stones.”

“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.”

“Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs.”

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

I would always rather be happy than dignified.”
