"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

Sara Lyn's Mad Lib 2

Happy Birthday!

This is a surprise party for Sam. We are here to celebrate his remote. All of his most remote friends are here, including me, his devoted and faithful pen. I must say that he doesn't look a day over 5.

Naturally, we have some beautiful presents for him. Lily bought him a beautiful copper cloud that he can wear on his lovely dog. And our hostess got him a dozen cats that he can hang in his blanket. And we had the bakery send up a huge messy orange with 23 candles on it.

We all want to wish him a very white birthday and many happy puzzles. Now, let's all sing together: "Happy towel-day to you!"
