"I cannot remember the time when I was not writing, or when I did not mean to be an author."

"There are many different happinesses, and we never know them all at once, because that would be perfect happiness,
and that is something the gods do not allow us mortals."

"We must have ideals and try to live up to them, even if we never quite succeed. Life would be a sorry business without them.
With them it's grand and great."

"I'm always sorry when pleasant things end. Something still pleasanter may come after, but you can never be sure."

"It's been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will."

— Lucy Maud Montgomery
