The Deepest Romance

“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 one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps . . . perhaps . . . love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.” 

**L.M. Montgomery

One Way or the Other

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

**Lucy Montgomery
