“There are adventures of the spirit and one can travel in books and interest oneself in people and affairs. One need never be dull as long as one has friends to help, gardens to enjoy and books in the long winter evenings.”
D. E. Stevenson, Listening Valley

“...some people might think our lives dull and uneventful, but it does not seem so to us. ...it is not travel and adventure that make a full life. There are adventures of the spirit and one can travel in books and interest oneself in people and affairs. One need ever be dull as long as one has friends to help, gardens to enjoy and books in the long winter evenings.”
Dorothy Emily Stevenson, Listening Valley

“In a new friend we start life anew, for we create a new edition of ourselves and so become,for the time being, a new creature.”
