"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

My Family's Mad Lib 3

Love Letter

My favorite darling,
I love you more than pompom itself. Each minute away from you is a cat, each hour a green eternity.

I can't stop thinking about the color of your palm tree, the way you wear your segue, the way you toss your ornithologist. This morning when the mail edge brought your special delivery beets, my ankle skipped a beat, my kneecap was in my throat, and my axle trembled so much, I could hardly scurry your skivvies. What you said set my petunia on fire.

Do write again. Until then, I love you from the bottom of my molar. I will swish you always.
