It's been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.
“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” -Anne Shirley
"...it's a million times nicer to be Anne of Green Gables than Anne of nowhere in particular, isn't it?"'
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.
Anne :" It is ever so much easier to be good when your clothes are fashionable." :)
That's Ann with an 'e'.
