The quotes inscribed in gray ink behind Jane are from Mr.Rochester and are as follows: "I never met your likeness Jane. I am influenced, conquered, and the influence is sweeter than I can express; and the conquest I undergo has a witchery beyond any triumph I can win." "..to the soul made of fire, and the character that bends but does not break-at once supple and stable, tractable and consistent-I am ever tender and true."
Favorite quote from "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Brontë Mr. Edward Fairfax Rochester.. You have my heart ♥
"He is not to them what he is to me," I thought: "he is not of their kind. I believe he is of mine; – I am sure he is, – I feel akin to him, – I understand the language of his countenance and movements: though rank and wealth sever us widely, I have something in my brain and heart, in my blood and nerves, that assimilates me mentally to him. […] I must, then, repeat continually that we are for ever sundered: – and yet, while I breathe and think I must love him."
At Thornfield Hall, resolute and independent Jane Eyre finds fulfillment in her duties as governess, and the love of her life in her employer Edward Rochester. But when a dark secret from Rochester's past comes to light, Jane must make the most difficult decision of her life: to stay beside the man she loves regardless of the truth, or to embark upon a new life free of the encumbrances of the past.
Love the use of the tree to separate them. The tree us a symbol of their love for one another, as well as how their strong pride (like a strong oak) prevents them from expressing their feelings. Could also represent their social class difference. jane eyre painting - Google Search
