A Mouthful of Anne: Quotes from Anne of Windy Poplars

Anne of Windy Poplars used to be my least favorite Anne book. But as I grew older, I learned to love it. It portrays  a more romantic, more grown-up version of Anne.

The best thing about the book is Rebecca Dew, Little Elizabeth, and Anne’s unexpected friendship with Katherine Brooks.

“It don’t never matter how poor you are as long as you’ve got something to love.”

“When you turn on the light, it makes the dark your enemy…and it glowers in at you resentfully.”

“Always remember, there’s more than one way to skin a cat. It can be done so that the animal’ll never know he’s lost his hide. ”

  1. Same here. As a kid, it was my least liked…that and Anne’s House of Dreams. As I grew older, I found them again and learned to love them. I guess when you’re too young, you just can’t relate much to both of those Annes. I still reread Windy Poplars whenever I see it and I have spare time, and to think I used to skim over most of her love letters to Gilbert! 🙂
