Charlotte Brontë – Jane Eyre (1847)

“It is a village school; your scholars will be only poor girls–cottagers’ children–at the best, farmers’ daughters. Knitting, sewing, reading, writing, ciphering, will be all you will have to teach. What will you do with your accomplishments? What with the largest portion of your mind–sentiments–tastes?”

“Save them till they are wanted. They will keep.”
