"This cordial is ever so nice, so much nicer than Mama's." "Oh Diana, thy memory wilt shine like a star over my lonely life." "Oh, Diana, do you think it's possible you're really taking the smallpox? If you are I'll go and nurse you. I'll never forsake you, Diana."
"Make no mistake about it, Anne Shirley. Diana will never be allowed to play with you again." "My life is a perfect graveyard of buried hopes." "Oh, Matthew, a white dress...and puffed sleeves!"
"Let us not have tears. Partings are a natural part of life. And so...goodbye." "I dare you to walk the ridgepole of Diana Barry's roof!" "Anne, are you killed? Oh, Anne, dear Anne, speak just one word to me and tell me if you're killed."
"Sleeve puffs! Ah, that's all you girls think about." "Miss Stacey says physical culture exercises make you graceful and promote digestion." "Last week we got to look for caterpillars and snails."
"Mrs. Lynde says she's never heard of such goings on and that it all comes of having a lady teacher." "And as the boat-head wound along, They heard her singing her last song, The Lady of Shalott." "I have come to the conclusion that it is no use trying to be romantic in Avonlea. It was easy enough in towered Camelot, but romance is not appreciated now."
"I'm not a bit changed, not really. I'm only just pruned down and branched out. The real me - back here - is just the same." "She's been a blessing to us, Marilla, and there never was a luckier mistake - if it was luck. It was Providence, I reckon. He knew we needed her..." "When I saw the sunrise over the hills this morning, the world looked like something God had just imagined for His own pleasure."
"Yes, I...I see now...the Presence of God around him." "Matthew always liked those roses the best. I hope he has roses like them in heaven." "It's nicer to think dear, pretty thoughts and keep them in one's heart, like treasures."
"When I left Queen's my future seemed to stretch out before me like a straight road. Now there is a bend in it. I don't know what lies around the bend, but I'm going to believe that the best does." "Have you really forgiven me my old fault?" "We're going to be the best of friends. We were born to be good friends, Anne. You've thwarted destiny long enough."
"I sat long at my window that night. My horizons had closed in since the night I had sat there after coming home from Queen's; but if the path set before me was to be narrow I knew that flowers of quiet happiness would bloom along it. Nothing could rob me of my birthright of dreams. And there was always the bend in the road!

'God's in his heaven, all's right with the world.'"
