So Safe a Prop

"You are no ruin, sir -- no lightning-struck tree: you are green and vigorous.
Plants will grow about your roots, whether you ask them or not, because they
take delight in your bountiful shadow; and as they grow they will lean towards you,
and wind round you, because your strength offers them so safe a prop."
~ from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
This is my favorite passage from a favorite book. By the time you read these words in the story, your heart will swell at the meaning behind them. So lovely and powerful. :)

Happy Sunday!
