Character doll kits in the future..

Oh dear sweet 'Anne Shirley'.... how would we survive without you?


"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? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?"
- Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables


"It's all very well to read about sorrows and imagine yourself living through them heroically, but it's not so nice when you really come to have them, is it?"
- Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

 
"Next to trying and winning, the best thing is trying and failing."
- Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables 


"Anne always remembered the silvery, peaceful beauty and fragrant calm of that night. It was the last night before sorrow touched her life; and no life is ever quite the same again when once that cold, sanctifying touch has been laid upon it."
- Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

 
"For we pay a price for everything we get or take in this world; and although ambitions are well worth having, they are not to be cheaply won, but exact their dues of work and self-denial, anxiety and discouragement."
- Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables


 “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.”
- Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables  

 
“Do you think amethysts can be the souls of good violets?”
- Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
