Standing Strong

"I will hold to the principles received by me when I was sane, and not mad- as I am now. Laws and principles are not for times when there is no temptation: they are for such moments as this, when body and soul rise in mutiny against their rigour; stringent are they; inviolate they shall be. If I at my individual convenience I might break them, what would be their worth?"

"Jane Eyre", by Charlotte Bronte, 1847


  1. Whoa, GREAT quote! I love that book. Are you reading it?

  2. Yeah, that one jumped out at me. I just barely finished it. Talk about drama!
