    “Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps . . . perhaps . . . love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.”
    L.M. Montgomery

    L.M. Montgomery
    “Well, it all comes to this; there's no use trying to live in other people's opinions. The only thing to do is to live in your own. After all, I believe in myself.

The only thing that still aggravates me is that Miss Potter pitied me -- pitied by a Potter!”
    L.M. Montgomery, Emily Climbs

    Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey
