? As a young woman, small and of relatively low social status, Jane, however, believes in the importance of women‘s independence, and strives to(努力) maintain a position in life. Her initial lack of money and low social status doesn’t unnerves her, as she realizes that those things are just seemingly flashy(浮华) .

?This is the name on the inscription engraved like marble, alex, wherever I go, my heart is toward him, longing to him and bless him.
Jane Eyre is very much the story of a quest to be loved. Jane searches, not just for romantic love, but also for a sense of being valued. She is poor in her living condition,but she is huge in soul.We still remember her goodness, selfrespect and the brave to pursuit equality.In my mind, though a person’s beauty on the face can make others once feel that one is attractive and charming, but if his or her mind isn’t the same beautiful as the appearance, the beauty cannot last for long time . For a long time, only a person’s great virtue, a noble soul, a beautiful heart can be called as long-lasting beauty.
