I've decided Anne Shirley is one of our great philosophers (LOL). After all it was she who said (quite dramatically I might add) "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." How perfectly delicious. Now you would think being born in Canada this would be one of my earlier reads. I actually came to Montgomery's works a little later. The Bronte sisters were more my cup of tea - I still remember the first time I read Jane Eyre. I was pretty sick at home for awhile and the librarian from the Public Library Portable that visited our school regularly, sent it home for me to read. Funny remembering that Portable that would get pulled up outside our school - that's probably where I got my ambition to be a librarian. What a cool job to go around town and check out books to little children! Though in the dead of winter I'm sure the librarian didn't think so...
Anyway, I just finished reading Anne of Green Gables again (I always cry about Matthew) and found this quote that I've now posted on my blog. Anne was all about kindred spirits - and I truly believe that I have met many since I started my blog and made so many virtual friends.
Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It' splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.
Wouldn't you agree? Of course Anne gets 5 out of 5 lampshades. Cheers Jewels
