L.M. Montgomery
“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?But am I talking too much? People are always telling me I do. Would you rather I didn't talk? If you say so I'll stop. I can STOP when I make up my mind to it, although it's difficult.”
Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

L.M. Montgomery
“The body grows slowly and steadily but the soul grows by leaps and bounds. It may come to its full stature in an hour.”
L.M. Montgomery, Rilla of Ingleside

Jean Anouilh
“Comprendre... Vous n'avez que ce mot-là à la bouche, tous, depuis que je suis toute petite. Il fallait comprendre qu'on ne peut pas toucher à l'eau, à la belle eau fuyante et froide parce que cela mouille les dalles, à la terre parce que cela tache les robes. Il fallait comprendre qu'on ne doit pas manger tout à la fois, donner tout ce qu'on a dans ses poches au mendiant qu'on rencontre, courir, courir dans le vent jusqu'à ce qu'on tombe par terre et boire quand on a chaud et se baigner quand il est trop tôt ou trop tard, mais pas juste quand on en a envie ! Comprendre. Toujours comprendre. Moi, je ne veux pas comprendre. Je comprendrai quand je serai vieille [...]. Si je deviens vieille. Pas maintenant.”
Jean Anouilh, Antigone

Frances Hodgson Burnett
“However many years she lived, Mary always felt that 'she should never forget that first morning when her garden began to grow'.”
Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

Alan Bennett
“You don't put your life into your books, you find it there.”
Alan Bennett, The Uncommon Reader
