Another Recently Uncovered Favorite Quote

Favorite line from Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre that I wrote in my journal when I was reading it in August, 1992.

The crisis was perilous; but not without its charm: such as the Indian, perhaps, feels when he slips over the rapid in his canoe.

I LOVE Jane Eyre, and I love that quote.

Great quote... I miss being able to use words like perilous and charm without sounding dramatic or unfashionable! My favorite, though, is responding to an offer with "that would be delightful" because sometimes... it just would.
