Anne Shirley and I go way back -- before she even met sweet Diana or handsome Gil.

My mom gifted me a beautiful illustrated copy of the novel Anne of Green Gables on my 11th birthday. That was like 10 years ago, but nonetheless, I rejoiced as if I had acquired a puffed sleeved dress when I received an invitation to a birthday party, where we would attempt to watch 8 hours of Anne!

There was just one problem.

 How was I going to keep from constantly commenting on the amazing display of unfolding characterization? If only they knew how much I wanted to say and didn't. :)

Thankfully, everyone laughed and discussed the plot here and there, so I was not alone in my Anne-like chatter.

Favorite Quotes (from both the books and movies): 

Anne Shirley: Wilt thou give me a lock of thy jet-black tresses?
Diana Barry: But I don't have any black dresses.
Anne Shirley: Your hair.
Diana Barry: All right.

“Oh, it's delightful to have ambitions. I'm so glad I have such a lot. And there never seems to be any end to them-- that's the best of it. Just as soon as you attain to one ambition you see another one glittering higher up still. It does make life so interesting.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Diana Barry: Just say one word and tell me if you're killed!
Anne Shirley: No... but I think I've been rendered unconscious.

Anne Shirley: I thought nothing could be as bad as red hair. Green is ten times worse.  

Anne Shirley: Ruby Gillis says when she grows up, she wants to have a line of beaus on a string and make them crazy for her. I'd rather have one, in his rightful mind.

Anne Shirley: Well, I wouldn't marry anyone who was really wicked, but I think I'd like it if he could be wicked and wouldn't.

“Look at that sea, girls--all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn't enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
