While reading Jane Eyre, I found this quote very interesting: " I had not intended to love him; the reader knows I had wrought hard to extirpate from my soul the germs of love there detected; and now, at the first renewed view of him, they spontaneously revived, great and strong!  He made me love him without looking at me." I find this quote very interesting because she was never looking to fall in love, but be loved by people. All her child hood she was not loved by her aunt Mrs. Reed and now she is loved by Adele ( her student) and all the students and fellow teachers at Lowood. I also find it interesting that she had tried to talk herself out of loving him, but it was impossible. Why would she try talking herself out of loving him, when she always wanted to be loved? 
 Another quote I found interesting was, " when I heard this I was beginning to feel a strange chill and failing at the heart. I was actually permitting my self to experience a sickening sense of disappointment:" (Chapter 17) In this point of the novel Mr. Rochester has left for ten days and hasn't come back. Jane misses Mr. Rochester and having the conversations, she would look forward to them everynight. Now that he's gone she misses all of that and not Adele or Mrs. Fairfax can give her the satisfaction that she enjoyed with Mr. Rochester.
