Quotes from novels:

It’s so easy to be wicked without knowing it, isn’t it?
Anne of Green Gables

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.
Anne of Avonlea

Anyone who has gumption knows what it is, and anyone who hasn’t can never know what it is. So there is no need of defining it.
Anne of the Island

Nobody is ever too old to dream. And dreams never grow old.
Anne of Windy Poplars

Proverbs are all very fine when there’s nothing to worry you, but when you’re in real trouble, they’re not a bit of help.
The Story Girl

Our ideals are always beautiful, whether they so translate themselves into realities or not.
Kilmeny of the Orchard

Let me remind you that the measure of anyone’s freedom is what he can do without.
Jane of Lantern Hill

Nothing mattered but her story. The characters came to life under her hand and swarmed through her consciousness, vivid, alluring, compelling. Wit, tears and laughter trickled from her pen. She lived and breathed in another world and came back to New Moon only at dawn to find her lamp burnt out and her table littered with manuscript – the first four chapters of her book. Her book! What magic and delight and awe and incredulity in the thought.
Emily’s Quest

Outgrowing things we love is never a pleasant process.
Emily of New Moon
