Copy
I had not intended... I had not intended to love him; the reader knows I had wrought hard to extirpate from my soul the germs of love there detected; and now, at the first renewed view of him, they spontaneously revived, great and strong! He made me love him without looking at me. 
Copy
I have little left... I have little left in myself -- I must have you. The world may laugh -- may call me absurd, selfish -- but it does not signify. My very soul demands you: it will be satisfied, or it will take deadly vengeance on its frame. 
Copy
I would always rather... I would always rather be happy than dignified. 
Copy
Life appears to me... Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity, or registering wrongs.
Copy
