Probably, if I had lately left a good home and kind parents, this would have been the hour when I should most keenly have regretted the separation: that wind would then have saddened my heart; this obscure chaos would have disturbed my peace: as it was I derived from both a strange excitement, and reckless and feverish, I wished the wind to howl more wildly, the gloom to deepen to darkness, and the confusion to rise to clamour.

– Charlotte Bronte

Jane Eyre, Chapter 6. Had Jane left a happy home to go to Lowood, she believes that she would have regretted her move to the boarding school. But because she spent an unhappy childhood at Gateshead, she is instead excited by her situation at Lowood. This is symbolized by the howling wind and chaos outside her window, an example of pathetic fallacy.
