Although, I don’t think I’d be friends with Jane Eyre, she’s so serious and ruled by reason. I’d roll my eyes at her a lot. But, Anne Shirley, now we could be the most darling friends, of this I’m sure.
And this is why.
“I’d like to add some beauty to life,” said Anne dreamily. I don’t exactly want to make people KNOW more… though I know that IS the noblest ambition… but I’d love to make them have a pleasanter time because of me… to have some little joy or happy thought that would never have existed if I hadn’t been born.” “I think you’re fulfilling that ambition every day,” said Gilbert admiringly.
Me too, Anne. Thanks for getting me.
And that is when I put my Kindle down and took a sip of tea. I might have to put that on a giant canvas.
