Here’s a particularly charming post over at Book Riot — The thirty most entertaining and uplifting quotes from Anne of Green Gables.
Something about her irrepressible optimism paired with her wholly original view of the world makes me love coming back to her when life gets overwhelming or frightening.
Um, shall I admit that I never read Anne of Green Gables? Nor do I plan to, because I suspect it’s one of the books you need to read when you’re a kid. Even so, I like this post.
“Here sat Marilla Cuthbert, when she sat at all, always slightly distrustful of sunshine, which seemed to her too dancing and irresponsible a thing for a world which was meant to be taken seriously.”
That’s delightful. A good many of these quotes are delightful. Maybe I should rethink my plan not to read Anne of Green Gables after all.
