L.M. Montgomery Quote: “How those girls enjoyed putting their nest in order! As Phil said, it was almost as good as getting married. You had the fun of homemaking without the bother of a husband.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Mrs Allan says that whenever we think of anything that is a trial to use we should also think of something nice that we can set over against it. If you are slightly too plump, you’ve got the dearest dimples; and if I have a freckled nose the shape of it is all right.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “I don’t seem to be like other girls, Judy. They all want to go to college and have a career. I don’t... I just want to stay at Silver Bush and help you and mother. There’s work for me here, Judy... you know there is. Mother isn’t strong. As for being educated... I shall be well educated... love educates, Judy.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “I never see a ship sailing out of the channel, or a gull soaring over the sand-bar, without wishing I were on board the ship or had wings, not like a dove ‘to fly away and be at rest,’ but like a gull, to sweep out into the very heart of the storm.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Listen to the bells ringing in Rainbow Valley! I never heard them so clearly. They’re ringing for peace – and new happiness – and all the dear, sweet, sane, homey things that we can have again now, Miss Oliver.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “There isn’t any devil in a good dog. That’s why they’re more lovable than cats, I reckon. But I’m darned if they’re as interesting.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “The Donald Fraser of The Story Girl was Donald Montgomery, and Neil Campbell was David Murray, of Bedeque. The only embroidery I permitted myself in the telling of the tale was to give Donald a horse and cutter. In reality, what he had was a half-broken steer, hitched to a rude, old wood-sled, and it was with this romantic equipage that he hied him over to Richmond Bay to propose to Nancy!”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Miss Eliza was one of those people who give you the impression that life is indeed a vale of tears, and that a smile, never to speak of a laugh, is a waste of nervous energy truly reprehensible. The Andrew girls had been “girls” for fifty odd years and seemed likely to remain girls to the end of their earthly pilgrimage. Catherine, it was said, had not entirely given up hope, but Eliza, who was born a pessimist, had never had any.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Yet he was a rather nice-looking young man, with crinkly russet eyes and crinkly red-brown hair, not to mention a chin that gave the world assurance of a chin.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “I know they’ll take their knitting with them everywhere. They simply couldn’t be parted from it. They will walk about Westminster Abbey and knit, I feel sure.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “How dreadful it would be not to love a cat! How much one would miss out of life.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “You see,” she concluded miserably, “when I can call like that to him across space – I belong to him. He doesn’t love me – he never will – but I belong to him.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “It never rains but it pours.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Why, for mercy’s sake, did boys try to dance who didn’t know the first thing about dancing; and who had feet as big as boats?”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “When he said good evening you felt that it was a good evening and that it was partly his doing that it was.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “It had always seemed to Emily, ever since she could remember, that she was very, very near to a world of wonderful beauty. Between it and herself hung only a thin curtain; she could never draw the curtain aside – but sometimes, just for a moment, a wind fluttered it and then it was as if she caught a glimpse of the enchanting realm beyond – only a glimpse – and heard a note of unearthly music.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Any human companionship, even the dearest and most perfect, would have been alien to her then. She was sufficient unto herself, needing not love nor comradeship nor any human emotion to round out her felicity. Such moments come rarely in any life, but when they do come they are inexpressibly wonderful – as if the finite were for a second infinity – as if humanity were for a space uplifted into divinity – as if all ugliness had vanished, leaving only flawless beauty.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Oh, WHY can’t boys be just sensible!”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Gilbert, having tried to please both sides, succeeded, as is usual and eminently right, in pleasing neither.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Felicity, if I die from the effects of eating sawdust pudding, flavoured with needles, you’ll be sorry you ever said such a thing to your poor old uncle,” said Uncle Roger reproachfully.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “I don’t know whether it is any use forgiving people or not. Yes, it is, it makes you feel more comfortable yourself.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Mrs Lynde says, “Blessed are they who expect nothing, for they shall not be disappointed.” But I think it would be worse to expect nothing than to be disappointed.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Many people have told me that they regretted Matthew’s death in Green Gables. I regret it myself. If I had the book to write over again I would spare Matthew for several years. But when I wrote it I thought he must die, that there might be a necessity for self-sacrifice on Anne’s part, so poor Matthew joined the long procession of ghosts that haunt my literary past.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “So said Mrs. Rachel to the wild rose bushes out of the fullness of her heart; but if she could have seen the child who was waiting patiently at the Bright River station at that very moment her pity would have been still deeper and more profound.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “All your life Davy, you’ll find yourself doing things you don’t want to do – Anne Shirley.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “The tinkles of sleigh bells among the snowy hills came like elfin chimes through the frosty air, but their music was not sweeter than the song in Anne’s heart and on her lips.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Everybody is a little insane on some points.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “That water looks as if it was smiling at me.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “How horrible it is that people have to grow up!”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “It was because you looked so happy. Oh, you’ll agree with me now that I AM a hateful beast – to hate another woman just because she was happy, – and when her happiness didn’t take anything from me! That.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “The Blue Chest of Rachel Ward” was another “ower-true tale.” Rachel Ward was Eliza Montgomery, a cousin of my father’s, who died in Toronto a few years ago. The blue chest was in the kitchen of Uncle John Campbell’s house at Park Corner from 1849 until her death. We children heard its story many a time and speculated and dreamed over its contents, as we sat on it to study our lessons or eat our bed-time snacks.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Pat wanted to comfort him for something she did not understand. She slipped her little hand into his... he had a warm pleasant hand. They walked home together so.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “An hour ago on the sand-shore he has been looking at her as if she were the only being of any importance in the world. And now she was a nobody.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Lovely thoughts came flying to meet me like birds. They weren’t my thoughts. I couldn’t think anything half so exquisite. They came from somewhere.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “What a splendid day!′ said Anne, drawing a long breath. ‘Isn’t it good just to be alive on a day like this? I pity the people who aren’t born yet for missing it. They may have good days, of course, but they can never have this one.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “The rustle of the poplar leaves about the house worried her, it sounded so like pattering raindrops, and the dull, far-away roar of the gulf, to which she listened delightedly at other times, loving its strange, sonorous, haunting rhythm, now seemed like a prophecy of storm and disaster to a small maiden who particularly wanted a fine day.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “It’s a dreadful mistake to cherish bitterness for years... hugging it to our hearts like a treasure.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “It was so easy to defy once you got started. The first step was the only one that really counted.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “I think it is because I have a habit, when I am bored or disgusted with people of stepping suddenly into my own world and shutting the door. People resent this – I suppose it is only natural to resent a door being shut in your face. They call it slyness when it is only self-defense.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Don’t be fretting... about me marrying. Marrying’s a trouble and not marrying’s a trouble and I sticks to the trouble I knows.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “It wouldn’t do to have all our dreams fulfilled. We would be as good as dead if we had nothing left to dream about. – Anne Shirley.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “I wonder if perfume could set a man drunk.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Marilla Cuthbert was driving into the yard as Anne returned from the house, and the latter flew to get tea ready. They discussed the matter at the tea table. “I’ll be glad when the auction is over,” said Marilla. “It is too much responsibility having so much stock about the place and nobody but that unreliable Martin to look after them. He has never come back yet and he promised that he would certainly be back last.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Looking forward to things is half the pleasure of them. You mayn’t get the things themselves but nothing can prevent you from having the fun of looking forward to them. – Anne Shirley.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “It’s a pretty good world, after all, isn’t it, Marilla?” concluded Anne happily. “Mrs. Lynde was complaining the other day that it wasn’t much of a world. She said whenever you looked forward to anything pleasant you were sure to be more or less disappointed... perhaps that is true. But there is a good side to it too. The bad things don’t always come up to your expectations either... they nearly always turn out ever so much better than you think.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “She had died in her sleep, painlessly and calmly, and on her face was a smile- as if, after all, death had come as a kindly friend to lead her over the threshold, instead of the grisly phantom she had dreaded... Anne, looking down through a mist of tears, at her old playfellow, thought she saw the face of God had meant Ruby to have, and remembered it so always.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Revenge hurts nobody quite so much as the one who tries to inflict it.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Even when I’m alone, I have real good company – dreams and imaginations and pretendings.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Is there laughter in your face yet, Rilla? I hope so. The world will need laughter and courage more than ever in the years that will come next. I don’t want to preach – this isn’t any time for it.”
L.M. Montgomery Quote: “Just imagine – this night week I’ll be in Avonlea – delightful thought!” said Anne, bending over the box in which she was packing Mrs. Rachel Lynde’s quilts. “But just imagine – this night week I’ll be gone forever from Patty’s Place – horrible thought!”
