I've loved you ever since that day you broke your slate over my head in school.

I can't cheer up ? I don't want to cheer up. It's nicer to be miserable!

Anne has as many shades as a rainbow and every shade is the prettiest while it lasts.

Oh, look, here's a big bee just tumbled out of an apple blossom. Just think what a lovely place to live?in an apple blossom! Fancy going to sleep in it when the wind was rocking it. If I wasn't a human girl, I think I'd like to be a bee and live among the flowers.

Oh, it's delightful to have ambitions. I'm so glad I have such a lot. And there never seems to be any end to them?that's the best of it. Just as soon as you attain to one ambition you see another one glittering higher up still. It does make life so interesting.

I've done my best, and I begin to understand what is meant by 'the joy of strife'. Next to trying and winning, the best thing is trying and failing.

L M Montgomery

Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive?it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we know all about everything would it?

L M Montgomery

L M Montgomery

I can't. I'm in the depths of despair. Can you eat when you are in the depths of despair?

L M Montgomery

L M Montgomery

I don't know, I don't want to talk as much? It's nicer to think dear, pretty thoughts and keep them in one's heart, like treasures. I don't like to have them laughed at or wondered over.

L M Montgomery

Well, that is another hope gone. 'My life is a perfect graveyard of buried hopes.' That's a sentence I read in a book once, and I say it over to comfort myself whenever I'm disappointed in anything.

L M Montgomery

There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting.

L M Montgomery

Life is worth living as long as there's a laugh in it.

L M Montgomery

Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.

Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it? Yet.

L M Montgomery

When I left Queen's my future seemed to stretch out before me like a straight road. I thought I could see along it for many a milestone. Now there is a bend in it. I don't know what lies around the bend, but I'm going to believe that the best does.

L M Montgomery

But really, Marilla, one can't stay sad very long in such an interesting world, can one?

L M Montgomery

That's the worst of growing up, and I'm beginning to realize it. The things you wanted so much when you were a child don't seem half so wonderful to you when you get them.

L M Montgomery

It's been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.

L M Montgomery

Don't you just love poetry that gives you a crinkly feeling up and down your back?

L M Montgomery

L M Montgomery

I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

L M Montgomery

Look at that sea, girls?all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn't enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.

L M Montgomery

L M Montgomery

Why must people kneel down to pray? If I really wanted to pray I'll tell you what I'd do. I'd go out into a great big field all alone or in the deep, deep woods and I'd look up into the sky?up?up?up?into that lovely blue sky that looks as if there was no end to its blueness. And then I'd just feel a prayer.

It is ever so much easier to be good if your clothes are fashionable.

L M Montgomery

Which would you rather be if you had the choice?divinely beautiful or dazzlingly clever or angelically good?
