Charlotte Brontë

I have little left in myself – I must have you. The world may laugh – may call me absurd, selfish – but it does not signify. My very soul demands you: it will be satisfied, or it will take deadly vengeance on its frame. —  Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre. (Smith, Elder & Co. 16 October 1847)
