Jane Eyre (1943 film) Quotes

Orson Welles as Edward Rochester

  • (Orson Welles) "Are you always drawn to the loveless and unfriended?"
  • (Joan Fontaine) "When it's deserved."

Joan Fontaine as Jane Eyre

  • (Joan Fontaine) "As the months went past, he came to see the light once more as well as to feel its warmth; to see first the glory of the sun, and then the mild splendour of the moon, and at last the evening star. And then one day, when our firstborn was put into his arms, he could see that the boy had inherited his own eyes as they once were -- large, brilliant and black."
  • (Joan Fontaine) "My name is Jane Eyre -- I was born in 1820, a harsh time of change in England. Money and position seemed all that mattered. Charity was a cold and disagreeable word. Religion too often wore a mask of bigotry and cruelty. There was no proper place for the poor or the unfortunate. I had no father or mother, brother or sister. As a child I lived with my aunt, Mrs. Reed of Gateshead Hall. I do not remember that she ever spoke one kind word to me."
  • (Joan Fontaine) "I should never mistake informality for insolence. One, I rather like; the other, no free-born person would submit to, even for a salary."
  • (Orson Welles) "Humbug. Most free-born people would submit to anything for a salary."

Agnes Moorehead as Mrs. Reed

  • (Agnes Moorehead) "This, Mr. Brocklehurst, is the child in question. She is the daughter of my late sister's husband by an unfortunate union which we in the family prefer to forget. For some years she's lived in this house."

John Sutton as Dr. Rivers

  • (John Sutton) "You keep your schoolroom uncommonly cold, Mr. Brocklehurst."
  • (Henry Daniell) "A matter of principle, Dr. Rivers. Our aim is not to pamper the body but strengthen the soul."
  • (John Sutton) "I should not have thought that a bad cough was any aid to salvation, but then I'm not a theologian. Good day, sir."
