AnonymousI’m on an important quest for a quote from the Anne of Green Gables books (I’m not sure if it’s in the movies or not) mentioned to me once by someone else. I’ve never read it myself, so this description is going to be vague, but after scouring the internet, I found you and you seemed fairly knowledgeable, so if you’re up for the favor, I’d appreciate your help. This quote was said either by Gilbert or Anne (to the other), and I think it was Gilbert but I’m not positive. It is going to be special
Hi! Is there any more description you could give? I’ll definitely try and find it for you.
I meant to write to Una tonight, too, but I won’t have time now. Read this letter to her and tell her it’s really meant for you both—you two dear, fine loyal girls. Tomorrow, when we go over the top—I’ll think of you both—of your laughter, Rilla-my-Rilla, and the steadfastness in Una’s blue eyes—somehow I see those eyes very plainly tonight, too.
"One of those books that built my childhood. Let’s just pretend Anne Shirley totally could have looked like that. That’s how I was picturing her"
Anne reveled in the world of color about her. “Oh, Marilla,” she exclaimed, "I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn’t it?”
Anne of Green Gables - the entire book on a poster!
My copy of Anne of Green Gables growing up had these beautiful illustrations by Lauren Mills. And it wasn’t just full paged ones either, smaller sketches and watercolours were dotted throughout the text, making it hard for me to conceive of the book as a novel.
