To be privileged to put my arms round what I value – to press my lips to what I love – to repose on what I trust: is that to make a sacrifice? If so, then certainly I delight in sacrifice.

– Charlotte Bronte

Jane Eyre, Chapter 37. When Jane is reunited with Rochester she openly declares her love for him. He has suggested that she is sacrificing herself to wait on a crippled man twenty years her senior. But Jane dismisses the idea, saying that it is a privilege and not a sacrifice to love him. This quote shows the depth of Jane’s love for Rochester.
