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, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
Context: 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. Preface, 2nd edition (22 July 1848)

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

—  Anne Brontë
Context: On all her breezes borne Earth yields no scents like those; But he, that dares not grasp the thorn Should never crave the rose.

„All true histories contain instruction“

—  Anne Brontë
Context: 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. Ch. I : The Parsonage

„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?“

—  Anne Brontë
Context: 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. Ch. XII : A Tête-à-tête and a Discovery; Gilbert and Helen

„Forgetfulness is not to be purchased with a wish“

—  Anne Brontë
Context: 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. Ch. XXXV : Provocations; Helen to Walter

„I did not know the nights of gloom,
The days of misery;
The long, long years of dark despair,
That crushed and tortured thee.“

—  Anne Brontë
Context: p>All for myself the sigh would swell, The tear of anguish start; I little knew what wilder woe Had filled the Poet's heart.I did not know the nights of gloom, The days of misery; The long, long years of dark despair, 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
Context: p>I ask not how remote the day Nor what the sinner's woe Before their dross is purged away, Enough for me to knowThat when the cup of wrath is drained, The metal purified, They'll cling to what they once disdained, And live by Him that died.</p

„All for myself the sigh would swell,
The tear of anguish start;
I little knew what wilder woe
Had filled the Poet's heart.“

—  Anne Brontë
Context: p>All for myself the sigh would swell, The tear of anguish start; I little knew what wilder woe Had filled the Poet's heart.I did not know the nights of gloom, The days of misery; The long, long years of dark despair, That crushed and tortured thee.</p

„I ask not how remote the day
Nor what the sinner's woe
Before their dross is purged away,
Enough for me to know“

—  Anne Brontë
Context: p>I ask not how remote the day Nor what the sinner's woe Before their dross is purged away, Enough for me to knowThat when the cup of wrath is drained, The metal purified, They'll cling to what they once disdained, And live by Him that died.</p

„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
Context: 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.
