Happy Birthday Charlotte Brontë
“To you I am neither man nor woman. I come before you as an author only. It is the sole standard by which you have a right to judge me--the sole ground on which I accept your judgment.” ― Charlotte Brontë
Charlotte Brontë was born on this day in 1816 and is the author of one of my favorite novels, "Jane Eyre" (of which I might have a few too many copies, if there is such a thing...;-) Though she and her sisters died at such young ages, their legacy remains remarkable. If you haven't read their work, this book is an excellent place to start. happy reading!
