We were strangers, starting out on a journey…
Never dreaming what we’d have to go through.

Anne reveled in the world of color about her. “Oh, Marilla,” she exclaimed, "I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn’t it?”

↬ Anne Shirley & Gilbert Blythe (Anne of Green Gables, 1985)

Anne: He loves me? I can’t know why.
MarillaBecause you made Josie Pye and Ruby Gillis and all of those wishy-washy young ladies who waltzed by him look like spineless nothings.
Anne: Marilla, he’s hardly my ideal of a romantic suitor.

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.
