ststilinski asked for: Jane & Rochester | Film Noir (au meme)
You-you strange, you almost unearthly thing!-I love you as my own flesh. You-poor and obscure, and small and plain as you are-I entreat to accept me as a husband.
i just love this too much
I want this.
I offer you my hand, my heart. Jane, I ask you to pass through life at my side. you are my equal and my likeness. Will you marry me?
Do you think that because I am poor, plain, obscure, and little that I am souless and heartless? I have as much soul as you and full as much heart. And if God had possessed me with beauty and wealth, I could make it as hard for you to leave me as I to leave you… I’m not speaking to you through mortal flesh. It is my spirit that addresses your spirit, as it passes through the grave and stood at God’s feet equal. As we are.
Jane Eyre (2011)
