Best Quotes by Charlotte Bronte (Top 10)

  1. Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity, or registering wrongs.
  2. Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste.
  3. I try to avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward.
  4. The human heart has hidden treasures, In secret kept, in silence sealed; The thoughts, the hopes, the dreams, the pleasures, Whose charms were broken if revealed.
  5. I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will.
  6. Life is so constructed, that the event does not, cannot, will not, match the expectation.
  7. Better to be without logic than without feeling.
  8. Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilized by education; they grow firm there, firm as weeds among stones.
  9. Men judge us by the success of our efforts. God looks at the efforts themselves.
  10. I hold another creed, which no one ever taught me, and which I seldom mention, but in which I delight, and to which I cling, for it extends hope to all; it makes eternity a rest - a mighty home, not a terror and an abyss. Besides, with this creed, I can so clearly distinguish between the criminal and his crime; I can so sincerely forgive the first while I abhor the last; with this creed, revenge never worries my heart, degradation never too deeply disgusts me, injustice never crushes me too low. I live in calm, looking to the end.
