LM MONTGOMERY QUOTES IN CELEBRATION OF HER BIRTHDAY

  1. Humour is the spiciest condiment in the feast of existence. Laugh at your mistakes but learn from them, joke over your troubles but gather strength from them, make a jest of your difficulties but overcome them.
  2. I can't help flying up on the wings of anticipation. It's as glorious as soaring through a sunset...almost pays for the thud.
  3. Look at the sea, girls - all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn't enjoy it's loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.
    -Anne of Green Gables
  4. The greatest happiness is to sneeze when you want to.
    -The Blue Castle
  5. The only thing you can be sure of in this world is the multiplication table.
    -The Blue Castle
  6. My life is a perfect graveyard of buried hopes.
    -Anne of Green Gables

  10. Proverbs are all very fine when there's nothing to worry you, but when you're in real trouble, they're not a bit of help.
    -The Story Girl
  11. I think there are two kinds of true thing - true things that are, and true things are not, but might be.
    -The Story Girl
  12. The body grows slowly and steadily but the soul grows by leaps and bounds. It may come to its full stature in an hour.

  13. You never know what peace is until you walk on the shores or in the fields or along the winding red roads of Prince Edward Island in a summer twilight when the dew is falling and old stars are peeping out and the sea keeps its mighty tryst with the little land it loves.
  14. Prince Edward Island in the month of June is such a thing as you don't often see except in happy dreams.
    -Kilmeny of the Orchard
  15. I hunted up PE Island on the map...There's an awful lot of water round it. Ain't you afraid of falling over the edge?
