Charlotte Bronte 1816 - 1855 was an English novelist and poet who originally penned her works under the name ‘Currer Bell’. These works have now become classics of English Literature. 
Her most famous novel ‘Jane Eyre’ is believed to have been inspired by her own experience of boarding school as a child. 
‘I try to avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward’ 
‘A ruffled mind makes a restless pillow’ 
‘I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will’ 
‘If we would build on a sure foundation in friendship, we must love friends for their sake rather than for our own’ 
‘Better to be without logic than without feeling’ 
‘If you are cast in a different mould to the majority, it is no merit of yours: Nature did it’ 
‘Life is so constructed, that the event does not, cannot, will not, match the expectation’ 
‘Who has words at the right moment?’ 
‘Men judge us by the success of our efforts. God looks at the efforts themselves’ 
‘The trouble is not that I am single, and likely to stay single, but that I am lonely and likely to stay lonely’ 
‘Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity, or registering wrongs’ 
‘You know full well as I do the value of sisters’ affections: There is nothing like it in this world’ 
‘Look twice before you leap’ 
‘Cheerfulness, it would appear, is a matter which depends fully as much on the state of things within, as on the state of things without and around us’ 
‘I would always rather be happy than dignified’ 
‘Let your performance do the thinking’ 
‘I’m just going to write because I cannot help it’ 
‘Give him enough rope and he will hang himself’ 
‘If all the world hated you and believed you wicked, while your own conscience approved of you and absolved you from guilt, you would not be without friends’ 
‘Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste’
