Human treasure
Born delights
Independent will

I cannot price

Withheld Self-respect

Sold for
Extraneous delights

Excerpts from “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Brönte:

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”
“I can live alone, if self-respect, and circumstances require me so to do. I need not sell my soul to buy bliss. I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all extraneous delights should be withheld, or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give.”
