Sometimes the words one writes about another are also about oneself …
If Anne was truthful, she did envy Emily settled at Haworth never having to apologize for withdrawing from the world and into her writing.
Anne didn’t expect to ever make peace with her conscience, to stop strengthening her nerve or moderating her sensitivity. Much of the time she hid the ambitious side of her nature, but in neglect it seemed to grow larger and harder to control, a dangerous thing if ever it had more sway over her than responsibility and faith.

I like the idea of a ‘Saturday Short’. 🙂 I always enjoy the short snippets/few paras you pick out from all of your books. 🙂
