"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

Latest Poll Results

Wow. I'm not sure where they all came from, but we had 7 votes on the latest poll! Woohoo! Yay for readers!

Favorite Christmas Scene(s) from Period Drama Films Results

Anne of Green Gables 0 (0%)
Emma (1996) 2 (28%)
Little Women (1994)-1st Christmas 0 (0%)
Little Women (1994)-2nd Christmas 1 (14%)
Little Women (1994)-3rd Christmas 1 (14%)

Under the Greenwood Tree 3 (42%)

Those are some good results. What I'm shocked about is the winner: Under the Greenwood Tree! I mean, I'm thrilled. I was one of the voters. What surprises me is that the movie is not as well known, especially compared to the others on the list. Two other voters! Wow. I'm very, very happy. I hope others can come to love that movie, including its beginning Christmas scene(s).
Who cannot love Dick Dewy's mesmerization with Miss Fancy Day?!
Or their Christmas dance?

Ai, mi. Mmm-hmm.
