So, I made a friends cut. Either because you don't post, or you post too often and I can't keep up with you, or the commenting is a one-way street. Hopefully no one is offended! I told myself I would never do a cut but it turns out my friends page is just too overwhelming right now.

Thanks!

Jack: How you can sit there eating muffins when we're in this terrible trouble, I can't make out! It seems to me to be perfectly heartless...
Algy: I can hardly eat muffins in an agitated manner. The butter would probably get on my cuffs.

Well, I finally decided to actually put some effort into making my livejournal pretty. So here it is, my new layout, and it is very girly.

"I had not intended to love him: the reader knows that 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, green and strong! He made me love him without looking at me." (Chapter 17)

"Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties and a field for their efforts as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more priveleged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex." (Chapter 12)

You can expect to get quite a few Jane Eyre quotes in the near future because I am now re-reading it. Actually, the last time I read it was 5th grade, I think. I remember we all had to write down our favorite books, and mine was Jane Eyre, which the teacher was quite impressed with, although I think I did a whole lot of skimming back then!

Anyway, I started watching the Jane Eyre 2006 BBC miniseries yesterday and felt compelled to read the novel again, which I think was a good decision because it is simply brilliant.

"A man does not recover from such a devotion of the heart to such a woman! He ought not; he does not." (Chapter 20)
