Wise words from Charlotte


I try to avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward.
Charlotte Bronte

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.
Charlotte Bronte

You had no right to be born; for you make no use of life. Instead of living for, in, and with yourself, as a reasonable being ought, you seek only to fasten your feebleness on some other person's strength.
Charlotte Bronte
 
Memory in youth is active and easily impressible;
in old age it is comparatively callous to new impressions,
but still retains vividly those of earlier years.
Charlotte Bronte
