Anne

I got this quiz from Mrs Blythe, whom I found through someone else whom I found through Mama...


You are Anne. Find out more about her here.

Then I got this one off the site the other was on:



I can't remember the first time I read Anne of Green Gables or watched the movie. It seems like I've always loved Anne Shirley. She's one of my favorite literary characters, and I read Anne of Green Gables many times growing up. I'd like to read the books again. I love the first two movies though, but refused to see the third after hearing how dreadfully inaccurate it was with all the characters. They changed them up terribly and messed up everything.

Now a few quotes from Anne:

"Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?"

"Marilla, isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?"

"There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting."

"And people laugh at me because I use big words. But if you have big ideas you have to use big words to express them, haven't you?"

She did play Diana in a play once! At least, I'm pretty sure she did... :D I always thought it would be fun to play Anne in a play. Of course, I'd have to do something about my hair. IT would be fun though! :D

Love you too, and it was great talking to you tonight!

Yey for Anne! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I did the first quiz, and it said I'm Jane, from Jane of Lantern Hill. I guess I need to go read that book now, since I have no idea who that is!

Amy said...

I'm always quoting Anne :) I took the test and it said I'm Kilmeny, from "Kilmeny of the Orchard". I read that book a loooong time ago and loved it.

Melaney said...

I came up as Kilmeny too! lol...

I read Jane of Lantern Hill when I was little, but remember very little about it. I've never read Kilmeny of the Orchard though! I should see if our library has it.
