endless list of favourite books
↳ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
“Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! — I have as much soul as you — and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you.”

Some of these are so awkward, and some are great, and there’s that one with the dad that’s just 100% heartbreaking.

"Come, my friends,
‘Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.
It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:
It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,
And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.
Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."

—from the last stanza of Tennyson’sUlysses' (pub. 1842)

Alfred Tennyson was born on this day, 6 August, in 1809, in Lincolnshire, the fourth child to Revd. Dr. George Tennyson, Rector of Somersby, and Elizabeth Fytche.

"I either eat too much or starve myself. Sleep for 14 hours or have insomniac nights. Fall in love very hard or hate passionately. I don’t know what grey is. I never did."
