"And to this purpose"

"If people like to read their books, it is all very well, but to be at so much trouble in filling great volumes, which, as I used to think, nobody would willingly ever look into, to be labouring only for the torment of little boys and girls, always struck me as a hard fate; and though I know it is all very right and necessary, I have often wondered at the person's courage that could sit down on purpose to do it." (In other words: rambling analyses, opinions, ideas, views, and comments from an English major, Essay/paper-writing enthusiastic, Austen-loving Master Librarian on, well, Jane Austen...and a whole lot of other things, too.)

"Celebrated Passages are Quoted"

Heidi's favorite quotes

"What is it really like to be engaged?" asked Anne curiously. "Well, that all depends on who you're engaged to," answered Diana, with that maddening air of superior wisdom always assumed by those who are engaged over those who are not."— L.M. Montgomery

To the British Period Drama Lovers

It's time to vote for the men we love! And I'm allowing you more than one vote. Because, come on, there are many of them that we love! I have put up the heroes whom I have come to love, at one point of the movie or another. So, in a way, they all have received a vote from me just from making it on the list. But I will be choosing from my very, very favorites--the ones I can (and do!) watch over and over again. Ah. It's a sweet joy. Have fun!

Now, I know you said we could vote for more than one, but I voted for MORE than one. :) I just couldn't help myself. You know what I mean.
