Charlotte Bront

Famous quotes by charlotte bront:

    One does not jump, and spring, and shout hurrah! at hearing one has got a fortune, one begins to consider responsibilities, and to ponder business; on a base of steady satisfaction rise certain grave cares, and we contain ourselves, and brood over our bliss with a solemn brow.
    Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855)

    Something of vengeance I had tasted for the first time; as aromatic wine it seemed, on swallowing, warm and racy: its after- flavour, metallic and corroding, gave me a sensation as if I had been poisoned.
    Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855)

    Consistency, madam, is the first of Christian duties.
    Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855)
