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

Jane Eyre, chapter xii

another read through Jane Eyre

An image leftover from a never-written holiday post was the inspiration for me to finally buy my own copy of the classic book Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. The film adaptation is now out in the States, although it doesn’t look like it will make it over to Europe until the fall. Has anyone seen it? What did you think? I will bide my time waiting for the film with another read of this great novel (image via plush palate).
