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. ”
