Fair and Amiable

“If a woman is fair and amiable, she is praised for both qualities, but especially the former, by the bulk of mankind: if, on the other hand, she is disagreeable in person and character, her plainness is commonly inveighed against as her greatest crime, because, to common observers, it gives the greatest offence; while, if she is plain and good, provided she is a person of retired manners and secluded life, no one ever knows of her goodness, except her immediate connections.” Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte

Power of His Soul

“If he loved you with all the power of his soul for a whole lifetime, he couldn’t love you as much as I do in a single day.” Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

His Presence

“A safe, still night; too serene for the companionship of fear. We know that God is everywhere; but certainly we feel His presence most when His works are on the grandest scale spread before us: and it is in the unclouded night sky, where His worlds wheel their silent course, that we read clearest His infinitude, His omnipotence, His Omnipresence.” Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
