A Thought From Anne of Green Gables

I just have time to put up a quote:

“I’d like to add some beauty to life,” said Anne dreamily. “I don’t exactly want to make people KNOW more. . .though I know that IS the noblest ambition. . .but I’d love to make them have a pleasanter time because of me. . .to have some little joy or happy thought that would never have existed if I hadn’t been born.”

– from Anne of Avonlea, by L.M. Montgomery

(but sometimes I’d like to make people think about things they think they already know – or tell people about things I’ve noticed, but maybe they haven’t.)
