] It's neat how, before Mr R arrives, Jane is feeling content but in need of some meeting of minds. She reflects on being fond of Mrs Fairfax and Adele in a limited way, and clues us in on her capacity for a full-throttle love.
this is one of my favorite quotes in the novel. i use it to explain my restlessness that i happen to be in currently
"...I desired more of practical experience than i possessed; more of intercourse with my kind, if acquaintance with variety of charactern, than what was here within my reach. I valued what was good in Mrs. Fairfax, and what was good in Adele; but i believed in the existance of other and more vivid kinds of goodness, and what i believed in, i wished to behold"
i think that's why i adore this book so much. i relate to Jane Eyre more than any other fictional character.
