"I can see in you the glance of a curious sort of bird through the close-set bars of a cage, a vivid, restless, captive. Were it but free, it would soar, cloud high."
Jane Eyre (2011), dir. Cary Fukunaga.
I had not intended to love him; the reader knows I had wrought hard to extirpate from my soul the germs of love there detected; and now, at the first renewed view of him, they spontaneously revived, great and strong! He made me love him without looking at me.
"Am I a machine without feelings? Do you think that because I am poor, plain, obscure, and little that I am souless and heartless?" - Jane Eyre (2011)
“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me. I am a free human being with an independent will.” - Jane Eyre (2011)
