“The process of falling in love at first sight is as final as it is swift in such a case, but the growth of true friendship may be a lifelong affair.”
Sarah Orne Jewett

“Yes'm, old friends is always best, 'less you can catch a new one that's fit to make an old one out of. ”
Sarah Orne Jewett

“To let God make us, instead of painfully trying to make ourselves; to follow the path that his love shows us, instead of through conceit or cowardice or mockery choosing another; to trust Him for our strength and fitness as the flowers do, simply giving ourselves back to Him in grateful service,—this is to keep the laws that give us the freedom of the city in which there is no longer any night of bewilderment or ignorance or uncertainty.”
Sarah Orne Jewett, A Country Doctor
