'Oh, look, here’s a big bee just tumbled out of an apple blossom. Just think what a lovely place to live–in an apple blossom! Fancy going to sleep in it when the wind was rocking it. If I wasn’t a human girl, I think I’d like to be a bee and live among the flowers.'

'Well, that is another hope gone. ‘My life is a perfect graveyard of buried hopes.’ That’s a sentence I read in a book once, I say it over to comfort myself whenever I’m disappointed in anything.'

'Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it… Yet.'

'Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.'

'It’s been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.'

'Life is worth living as long as there’s a laugh in it.'

'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 are so many more we could have used! Have you got a favourite?
