A Word for Wednesday

"Anne walked home very slowly in the moonlight. The evening had changed something for her. 
Life held a different meaning, a deeper purpose. 
On the surface it would go on just the same; but the deeps had beens stirred. 
It must not be with her as with poor butterfly Ruby. 
When she came to the end of one life 
it must not be to face the next with the shrinking terror of something wholly different—something for which accustomed thought and ideal and aspiration had unfitted her. 
The little things of life, sweet and excellent in their place, must not be the things lived for; 
the highest must be sought and followed; 
the life of heaven must be begun here on earth."

~from Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery~

  1. This is one of my absolute favorite books of all time. I read this one whenever I'm truly feeling down and/or lonely.

    1. Aww! I love that! I can never pick a favorite Anne book. Whichever one I'm reading at the time is my favorite. :)
