The sisters are well known as poets and novelists. Look at their ages, didn’t they live such short lives… Like many contemporary female writers, they originally published their poems and novels under male pseudonyms: Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. Their stories immediately attracted attention for their passion and originality.
Anne, Emily, and Charlotte Brontë, by their brother Branwell (c. 1834). He painted himself among his sisters, but later removed the image so as not to clutter the picture. @ The National Portrait Gallery, London.
“Because, my dear, beauty is that quality which, next to money, is generally the most attractive to the worst kinds of men.” (Anne Brontë, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall)
“He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same…” (Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights)
“It is in vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquility: they must have action; they will make it if they cannot find it.” (Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre)
“What a fool you must be,” said my head to my heart, or my sterner to my softer self.”
― Anne bronte, Agnes Grey
