           original hardcover of 'Anne of Green Gables' [1908]


"But really, one can't stay sad very long in such an interesting world, can one?"

"Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out [that] there are so many of them in the world."

"Looking forward to things is half the pleasure of them."

"I feel as though someone's handed me the moon and I don't exactly know what to do with it."

"I know I chatter on far too much but if you only knew how many things I want to say and don't. Give me some credit."

— Anne Shirley Cuthbert

"[Anne is] the dearest, most lovable child in fiction since the immortal Alice."
Mark Twain [1835-1910]

The plot of the 2000 film bears little resemblance to the storylines of any of the 'Anne' source books because of legal disputes active at the time between Kevin Sullivan and the heirs of Lucy Maud Montgomery. Ultimately, Canadian courts agreed with the heirs that Sullivan had withheld contractually-promised profits from the heirs for the first two films in the series; the courts then also found Sullivan's $55-million suit for defamation against the heirs to be groundless.
