Charlotte Conjures

Today, April 21, is the glorious Charlotte Bronte’s birthday. She was born in 1816 and rocked the world from her small corner of the earth with her full-souled, feisty literary creations. A few of her words of wisdom to light our writing path:

“I try to avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward.”

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will.”

“Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity, or registering wrongs.”

“A ruffled mind makes a restless pillow.”

“It is vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquillity; they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it.”

“Look twice before you leap.”

“Let your performance do the thinking.”

“If I could I would always work in silence and obscurity, and let my efforts be known by their results.”

“Men judge us by the success of our efforts. God looks at the efforts themselves.”

“Who has words at the right moment?”

“Truer enthusiasm is a fine feeling whose flash I admire where-ever I see it.”

“Conventionality is not morality.”

“Better to be without logic than without feeling.”

“You know full well the value of sisters’ affections: There is nothing like it in this world.”

“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.”

“I’m just going to write because I cannot help it.”

And now, emboldened and inspired, let’s all write on!
