Curiosity of Growing Up

“They keep coming up new all the time – things to perplex you,

you know. You settle one question and there’s another right

after. There are so many things to be thought over and decided

when you’re beginning to grow up. It keeps me busy all the

time thinking them over and deciding what’s right. It’s a

serious thing to grow up, isn’t it, Marilla?”

–Lucy Maud Montgomery, “Anne of Green Gables.”
