"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

SOA Memories Part 4

15 years ago - Grindelwald, Switzerland. Taking Dramamine to prevent car sickness during this 2nd pass through the Alps. Tasting REAL chocolate--heaven. Discovering SNOW after our gondola ride up Mount First. My feet and back side getting very wet going down a slide on the mountain. Becoming an absent-minded criminal. Finally getting to hear the band perform.

See the wrappers from the amazing chocolate?

Beth Hornbaker Absent minded criminal??? Did you steal something Heidi??

Heidi-Marie Tice I saw this poor little flower sticking up out of the snow.I thought, "Oh how sad" and picked it without thinking. Because picking it saved it, right? Yeah.... Then as soon as I picked it I remembered: it is illegal to pick flowers in Switzerland.

Natalie Spring I am enjoying these posts more than you know. Ahhh the memories!

Heidi-Marie Tice What I didn't say is WHO told me to go down the slide first.... smile emoticon
