Anne Brontë Quote
I cannot express my joy. I find it very difficult to conceal it from my aunt; but I don't wish to trouble her with my feelings till I know whether I ought to indulge them or not. If I find it my absolute duty to suppress them, they shall trouble no one but myself; and if I can really feel myself justified in indulging this attachment, I can dare anything, even the anger and grief of my best friend.
Helen Graham (Ch. XVIII : The Miniature) - The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848)
