„All novels are, or should be, written for both men and women to read, and I am at loss to conceive how a man should permit himself to write anything that would be really disgraceful to a woman, or why a woman should be censured for writing anything that would be proper and becoming for a man.“

—  Anne Brontë, kniha Dvojí život Heleny Grahamové
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848), Context: I am satisfied that if a book is a good one, it is so whatever the sex of the author may be. All novels are, or should be, written for both men and women to read, and I am at loss to conceive how a man should permit himself to write anything that would be really disgraceful to a woman, or why a woman should be censured for writing anything that would be proper and becoming for a man. Preface, 2nd edition (22 July 1848)

„But he, that dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.“

—  Anne Brontë
The Narrow Way (1848), Context: On all her breezes borne Earth yields no scents like those; But he, that dares not grasp the thorn Should never crave the rose.

„It is better to arm and strengthen your hero, than to disarm and enfeeble your foe.“

—  Anne Brontë, kniha Dvojí život Heleny Grahamové
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848), Ch. III : A Controversy; Gilbert to Helen

„I ask not how remote the day
Nor what the sinner's woe
Before their dross is purged away,
Enough for me to know“

—  Anne Brontë, kniha Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell
Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell (1846), A Word to the Calvinists (1843), Context: p>I ask not how remote the day Nor what the sinner's woe Before their dross is purged away, Enough for me to knowThat when the cup of wrath is drained, The metal purified, They'll cling to what they once disdained, And live by Him that died.</p

„All true histories contain instruction“

—  Anne Brontë, kniha Agnes Grey
Agnes Grey (1847), Context: All true histories contain instruction; though, in some, the treasure may be hard to find, and when found, so trivial in quantity, that the dry, shrivelled kernel scarcely compensates for the trouble of cracking the nut. Whether this be the case with my history or not, I am hardly competent to judge. I sometimes think it might prove useful to some, and entertaining to others; but the world may judge for itself. Shielded by my own obscurity, and by the lapse of years, and a few fictitious names, I do not fear to venture; and will candidly lay before the public what I would not disclose to the most intimate friend. Ch. I : The Parsonage

„I have no horror of death: if I thought it inevitable I think I could quietly resign myself to the prospect … But I wish it would please God to spare me not only for Papa's and Charlotte's sakes, but because I long to do some good in the world before I leave it.“

—  Anne Brontë
Context: I have no horror of death: if I thought it inevitable I think I could quietly resign myself to the prospect... But I wish it would please God to spare me not only for Papa's and Charlotte's sakes, but because I long to do some good in the world before I leave it. I have many schemes in my head for future practice – humble and limited indeed – but still I should not like them all to come to nothing, and myself to have lived to so little purpose. But God's will be done. Letter to Ellen Hussey (5 April 1849), published in The Letters of Charlotte Brontë : With a Selection of Letters by Family and Friends (1995), edited by Margaret Smith, Vol. II: 1848–1851, p. 195

„I did not know the nights of gloom,
The days of misery;
The long, long years of dark despair,
That crushed and tortured thee.“

—  Anne Brontë, kniha Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell
Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell (1846), To Cowper (1842), Context: p>All for myself the sigh would swell, The tear of anguish start; I little knew what wilder woe Had filled the Poet's heart.I did not know the nights of gloom, The days of misery; The long, long years of dark despair, That crushed and tortured thee.</p
