"His mind has the clearness of the deep sea, the patience of its rocks, the force of its billows." ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte Suspense is irksome, disappointment bitter. ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte "I'll borrow of imagination what reality will not give me." ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte Alas, Experience! No other mentor has so wasted and frozen a face as yours, none wears a robe so black, none bears a rod so heavy, none with hand so inexorable draws the novice so sternly to his task, and forces him with authority so resistless to its acquirement. ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte "If men could see us as we really are, they would be a little amazed; but the cleverest, the acutest men are often under an illusion about women. They do not read them in a true light; they misapprehend them, both for good and evil. Their good woman is a queer thing, half doll, half angel; their bad woman almost always a fiend." ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte Love can excuse anything except meanness; but meanness kills love, cripples even natural affection; without esteem true love cannot exist. ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte The wings of action and ambition could not long lie folded. ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte Love is real—the most real, the most lasting, the sweetest and yet the bitterest thing we know. ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte "You do not know how the people of this country bear malice. It is the boast of some of them that they can keep a stone in their pocket seven years, turn it at the end of that time, keep it seven years longer, and hurl it and hit their mark 'at last.'" ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte The wild rains of the day are abated; the great single cloud disparts and rolls away from heaven, not passing and leaving a sea all sapphire, but tossed buoyant before a continued, long-sounding, high-rushing moonlight tempest. The moon reigns glorious, glad of the gale, as glad as if she gave herself to his fierce caress with love. ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte
