The Story of the Queen Ends…

‘Do you like him much?’

‘I told you I liked him a little. Where is the use of caring for him so very much? He is full of faults.’

‘Is he?’

‘All boys are.’

‘More than girls?’

‘Very likely. Wise people say it is folly to think anybody perfect; and as to likes and dislikes, we should be friendly to all, and worship none.’

‘Are you a wise person?’

‘I mean to try to be so. Go to sleep.’

 Thoughts of the ‘wiser’ character :‘How will she get through the shocks and repulses, the humiliations and desolations, which books, and my own reason tell me are prepared for all flesh?’

[chapter 3 of Villette by Charlotte Bronté]
