“Friends always forget those whom fortune forsakes.” Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
“Would you not be happier if you tried to forget her severity, together with the passionate emotions it excited? Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity, or registering wrongs.” Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
“It is a very strange sensation to inexperience youth to feel itself quite alone the world, cut adrift from every connection, uncertain whether the port to which it is bound can be reached, and prevented by many impediments from returning to that it has quitted. The charm of adventure sweetens that sensation, the glow of pride warms it; but then the throb of fear disturbs it; and fear with me became predominant when half an hour elapsed, and still I was alone.” Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
“Oh! that gentleness! how far more potent is it than force!” Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

If you’re not hip to Thug Notes, you really need to be. A series produced by Wisecrack. each video gives the summary and analysis of books ranging from 50 Shades of Grey to Fahrenheit 451. Thug Notes covers over 100 books (!) with more coming every month.
Last year I covered Thug Notes’ Pride and Prejudice video and I was thrilled to discover “Dr. Sparky Sweets” has also covered Emma, Jane Eyre, and Wuthering Heights. If you have a few minutes and you’re not opposed to some not safe for work language, you really need to check these out.
This can’t be a Jane Austen and Bronte blog with naming only Jane Austen perfumes, lotions, and soaps without finding them for the Bronte’s.
