"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 3

Love Letter

My genius darling,

I love you more than ornament itself. Each minute away from you is a doctor, each hour a fair eternity.

I can't stop thinking about the color of your horse, the way you wear your document, the way you toss your yarn. This morning when the mail basket brought your special delivery cards, my toe skipped a beat, my knee was in my throat, and my hat trembled so much, I could hardly carry your gun. What you said set my journal on fire.

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

I really enjoyed all of these, but I think this particular one was my favorite! Too funny! (Morgan laughed too.)

Heidi said...

This was my favorite of your 3. I also thought it funny that we all thought similarly on a couple of words. Such a great love letter from husband to wife. Enjoy tossing your yarn!
