“Every good, true, vigorous feeling I have gathers impulsively around him. I know I must conceal my sentiments; I must smother hope; I must remember that he cannot care much for me. For when I say that I am of his kind, I do not mean that I have his force to influence, and his spell to attract; I mean only that I have certain tastes and feelings in common with him. I must, then, repeat continually that we are forever sundered:-and yet, while I breathe and think, I must love him.”

– Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre
