Anne Brontë Quote
"I shall expect my husband to have no pleasures but what he shares with me; and if his greatest pleasure of all is not the enjoyment of my company —- why — it will be the worse for him —- that's all."
"If such are your expectations of matrimony, Esther, you must, indeed, be careful whom you marry - or rather, you must avoid it altogether"
Helen and Esther (Ch. XLI : Hope Springs Eternal in the Human Breast) - The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848)
