"I have for the first time found what I can truly love - I have found you. You are my sympathy - my better self - my good Angel - I am bound to you by a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my center and spring of life, wraps my existence about you - and kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one." ~ Charlotte Bronte, from 'Jane Eyre'
Jane Eyre is my favorite book ... it encompasses so many topics, including passion - as described in this quote. To love someone with such passion, as Bronte expresses, is something I can only dream of! So until then, I will "wrap my existence" around other things that are important to me and live with passion because of them:)
