  • Quotes

    • Mr.Rochester: Now Ms.Eyre, if we are very lucky, we might see some dragonflies. Did I tell you about my travels in the blue mountains of Mongolia? And you can tell me of your travels in the black and gloomy forest of your childhood memories.

    • Jane Eyre: Thank you for your great kindness. I'm strangely glad to get back again to you and... wherever you are is my home. Is my true home.

    • Jane Eyre: Do you think that I am a machine? That I can bear it? Do you think, because I'm poor, plain, obscure and little, that I have no heart? That I am without soul? I have as much heart as you, and as much soul. And if God had given me some beauty and wealth, I would make it as hard for you to leave me as it is now for me to leave you.

    • Mr.Rochester: We've been good friends, haven't we Jane? It's difficult to part from a friend and know you will never meet them again. And you know, it's like we were a pair of Eshton's twins. Bound together in some unworldly way, sharing a spirit or something like. When we are parted... when you leave me, I believe that bond will snap. And I will bleed inwardly. But you'll forget me after a while.
      Jane Eyre: I would never forget you. How can you imagine that? What do you think I am? I wish I had never been born, I wish I had never come here. I wish I'd never come to love Thornfield. I love Thornfield. I love it because I have lived a full life. I have not been trampled on. I have been treated as an equal. You have treated me as an equal. You are the best person I know, and I cannot bare the thought of having to leave you.
      Mr.Rochester: Must you leave me, Jane?
      Jane Eyre: Of course I must, because you have a wife!
      Mr.Rochester: What do you mean?
      Jane Eyre: Blanche Ingram, of course. You're as good as married to her. You promised her...
      Mr.Rochester: I have not promised Blanche anything.
