"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

I LOVE YouTube!

I was doing my annual down-sizing this afternoon. Going through some papers and shoeboxes of things. I found a note I jotted quickly down at least 7+ years ago after I heard a performance on the classical radio station. I had thoroughly enjoyed the song and was grateful they announced what it was. Then I spent occasional moments in the years since trying to find a recording of the song.

Today, I thought: why not try YouTube? EVERYTHING is on YouTube!

And lo and behold: it is! And even funnier to watch than listen to.

And now I can finally throw away that poor, wrinkled and crinkled note.
