QUOTE (Charlotte Brontë)

April 21, 2015

97h/17/vict/0382/58“God surely did not create us, and cause us to live, with the sole end of wishing always to die. I believe, in my heart, we were intended to prize life and enjoy it, so long as we retain it. Existence never was originally meant to be that useless, blank, pale, slow-trailing thing it often becomes to many, and is becoming to me, among the rest.”
~ Charlotte Brontë

In honor of Charlotte Brontë, English novelist (Jane Eyre), who was born on this day in 1816.
