“England was like a rich man after a disastrous orgy who makes up to the household by chatting with them individually, when it is obvious to them that he is only trying to get back his self-respect in order to usurp his former power.”
- F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender is the Night
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon my self and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possessed,
Desiring this man’s art, and that man’s scope,
What what I most enjoy contented least,
Yet in these thoughts my self almost despising,
Happily I think on thee, and then my state,
(Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth) sings hymns at heaven’s gate,
For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings,
That then I scorn to change my state with kings."
— William Shakespeare, Sonnet 29
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here
And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full
Of direst cruelty! Make thick my blood,
Stop up the access and passage to remorse,
That no compunctious visitings of nature
Shake my fell purpose nor keep peace between
The effect and it!"
— William Shakespeare - Macbeth, I.v.
— Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury
i have never been so surprised by a book as i was by Jane Eyre.
like honestly, i’ve tried the whole wuthering heights/pride and prejudice thing, and i hated it, but something inside of me just told be to give Jane a chance. i’m so happy i did! like i can’t remember the last time i read something that got me so emotionally involved, like the entire time i read the book i was wanting to scream at Jane, and when she found Mr Rochester, a tear came to my eye. i think a male character like Mr Rochester really made me fall in love (i fall for minds not abs, sorry) and i just got so emotionally involved and i just feel so good after reading it.
and i needed to share that, turrah.
