Jane Eyre — on the reserved people - Charlotte Brontë

This quote was added by user81105
I saw even that to be thus frankly addressed on a subject he had deemed unapproachable - to hear it thus freely handled - was beginning to be felt by him as a new pleasure - an unhoped - for relief. Reserved people often really need the frank discussion of their sentiments and griefs more than the expansive. The sternest - seeming stoic is human after all; and to "burst" with boldness and good-will into "the silent sea" of their souls is often to confer on them the first of obligations.
