Zitate Anne Brontë

„All novels are, or should be, written for both men and women to read, and I am at loss to conceive how a man should permit himself to write anything that would be really disgraceful to a woman, or why a woman should be censured for writing anything that would be proper and becoming for a man.“

—  Anne Brontë, buch The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

Preface, 2nd edition (22 July 1848)
Quelle: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848)
Kontext: I am satisfied that if a book is a good one, it is so whatever the sex of the author may be. All novels are, or should be, written for both men and women to read, and I am at loss to conceive how a man should permit himself to write anything that would be really disgraceful to a woman, or why a woman should be censured for writing anything that would be proper and becoming for a man.

„Smiles and tears are so alike with me, they are neither of them confined to any particular feelings: I often cry when I am happy, and smile when I am sad.“

—  Anne Brontë, buch The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

Quelle: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848), Ch. XV : An Encounter and its Consequences; Gilbert Markham

„But he, that dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.“

—  Anne Brontë

The Narrow Way (1848)
Kontext: On all her breezes borne
Earth yields no scents like those;
But he, that dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.

„It is better to arm and strengthen your hero, than to disarm and enfeeble your foe.“

—  Anne Brontë, buch The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

Quelle: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848), Ch. III : A Controversy; Gilbert to Helen

„All true histories contain instruction“

—  Anne Brontë, buch Agnes Grey

Quelle: Agnes Grey (1847), Ch. I : The Parsonage
Kontext: All true histories contain instruction; though, in some, the treasure may be hard to find, and when found, so trivial in quantity, that the dry, shrivelled kernel scarcely compensates for the trouble of cracking the nut. Whether this be the case with my history or not, I am hardly competent to judge. I sometimes think it might prove useful to some, and entertaining to others; but the world may judge for itself. Shielded by my own obscurity, and by the lapse of years, and a few fictitious names, I do not fear to venture; and will candidly lay before the public what I would not disclose to the most intimate friend.

„Are you hero enough to unite yourself to one whom you know to be suspected and despised by all around you, and identify your interests and your honour with hers? Think! it is a serious thing.“

—  Anne Brontë, buch The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

Quelle: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848), Ch. XII : A Tête-à-tête and a Discovery; Gilbert and Helen

„While on my lonely couch I lie,
I seldom feel myself alone,
For fancy fills my dreaming eye
With scenes and pleasures of its own.“

—  Anne Brontë, buch Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell

Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell (1846), Dreams (1845)
Kontext: While on my lonely couch I lie,
I seldom feel myself alone,
For fancy fills my dreaming eye
With scenes and pleasures of its own.
Then I may cherish at my breast
An infant's form beloved and fair,
May smile and soothe it into rest
With all a Mother's fondest care.

„Forgetfulness is not to be purchased with a wish; and I cannot bestow my esteem on all who desire it, unless they deserve it too.“

—  Anne Brontë, buch The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

Quelle: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848), Ch. XXXV : Provocations; Helen to Walter

„I have no horror of death: if I thought it inevitable I think I could quietly resign myself to the prospect … But I wish it would please God to spare me not only for Papa's and Charlotte's sakes, but because I long to do some good in the world before I leave it.“

—  Anne Brontë

Letter to Ellen Hussey (5 April 1849), published in The Letters of Charlotte Brontë : With a Selection of Letters by Family and Friends (1995), edited by Margaret Smith, Vol. II: 1848–1851, p. 195
Kontext: I have no horror of death: if I thought it inevitable I think I could quietly resign myself to the prospect... But I wish it would please God to spare me not only for Papa's and Charlotte's sakes, but because I long to do some good in the world before I leave it. I have many schemes in my head for future practice – humble and limited indeed – but still I should not like them all to come to nothing, and myself to have lived to so little purpose. But God's will be done.

That crushed and tortured thee.</p

„That when the cup of wrath is drained,
The metal purified,
They'll cling to what they once disdained,
And live by Him that died.“

—  Anne Brontë, buch Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell

Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell (1846), A Word to the Calvinists (1843)
Kontext: p>I ask not how remote the day

They'll cling to what they once disdained,
And live by Him that died.</p
