Anne Brontë Quote

I think your piety one of your greatest charms; but then, like all other good things, it may be carried too far. To my thinking, a woman's religion ought not to lessen her devotion to her earthly lord. She should have enough to purify and etherealise her soul, but not enough to refine away her heart, and raise her above all human sympathies


Arthur to Helen (Ch. XXIII : First weeks of Matrimony) - The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848)
