LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY QUOTES

We pay a price for everything we get or take in this world; and although ambitions are well worth having, they are not to be cheaply won, but exact their dues of work and self-denial, anxiety and discouragement.

LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY, Anne of Green Gables

I must get out all my ambitions and dust them.

LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY, Anne of Avonlea

I love to smell flowers in the dark ... You get hold of their soul then.

LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY, Anne's House of Dreams

When I think something nice is going to happen I seem to fly right up on the wings of anticipation; and then the first thing I realize I drop down to earth with a thud.... The flying part is glorious as long as it lasts ... it's like soaring through a sunset. I think it almost pays for the thud.

LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY, Anne of Avonlea

Oh, it's delightful to have ambitions. I'm so glad I have such a lot. And there never seems to be any end to them-- that's the best of it. Just as soon as you attain to one ambition you see another one glittering higher up still. It does make life so interesting.

LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY, Anne of Green Gables

LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY, 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 oneís side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps ... perhaps ... love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.

LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY, Anne of Avonlea

Secrets are generally terrible. Beauty is not hidden--only ugliness and deformity.

LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY, Emily Climbs

LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY, Anne of the Island

That's all the freedom we can hope for -- the freedom to choose our prison.

L. M. MONTGOMERY, The Blue Castle

Why must people kneel down to pray? If I really wanted to pray Iíll tell you what I'd do. I'd go out into a great big field all alone or in the deep, deep woods and I'd look up into the sky--up--up--up--into that lovely blue sky that looks as if there was no end to its blueness. And then I'd just feel a prayer.

L. M. MONTGOMERY, Anne of Green Gables

Life is worth living as long as there's a laugh in it.
