Jane's ideas of morality changed from her thinking that everything that she was punished for was wrong, to being well spoken and respected. She also put her faith in Christianity. Jane was abused at the Reed's home and also at Lowood. When Mr. Brocklehurst humiliated Jane in front of the whole school, Jane did anything she could to avoid ever being embarrassed like that again. She thought that speaking her mind and speaking out were wrong because she was degraded by teachers and staff for doing so. After meeting Helen Burns and becoming a teacher, Jane developed independence and her own set of morals. Helen Burns taught her about religion. "It is far better to endure patiently a smart which nobody feels but yourself than to commit a hasty action whose evil consequences will extend to all connected with you; and besides, the Bible bids us return good for evil" (p 58). Here Helen teaches Jane one of many lessons from the Bible. This in particular is about thinking before acting and dealing with consequence. Jane's faith in God guides her throughout the novel.
