Myra Gillis had 37 doilies when she got married, and I'm determined to have AT LEAST as many as she had.
I suppose it would be impossible to keep house with only 36 doilies. But I assure you, Mr. Wright, Diana will be the sweetest little homemaker in the world... so long as you can afford to let her keep up with the Gillises.
You set your heart too much on frivolous things and then crash down into despair when you don't get them.
I know. I can't help flying up on the wings of anticipation. It's as glorious as soaring through a sunset... almost pays for the thud.
Well, maybe it does. But I'd rather walk calmly along and do without flying AND thud.
Why do people have to grow up and marry, change?
Oh, you'd change. If someone ever admitted that they were head over heels for you, you'd be swept off your feet in a moment.
I would not, and I defy anyone who would try and make me change.
Maybe you don't think I'm good enough for you now, but I will be someday.
No, Gil you're a great deal too good for me. But you want someone who'll adore you. Someone who'll be happy just to hang on your arm and build a home for you. I wouldn't.
Anne, that's not what I'm looking for at all.
We'll end up like two old crows fighting all the time. I know I'd be unhappy and I'd wish we'd never done it.
I am sorry, but the fence that separates your potato field from our pasture is an eyesore. And if you'd kept it in better repair, Dolly wouldn't have broken in.
A jail fence wouldn't keep that devil out. And what's more, my Thomas has been far too ill the past six months to repair any fences. And I know one thing, you red-headed snippet! You'd be better employed fixing that fence yourself rather than mooning around, wasting your time, writing for some rubbishy magazine.
I would rather spend my time profitably than squander it in idle gossip, meddling in other people's affairs. I won't cherish any hard feelings against you because of your narrow-minded opinions. But, thank goodness I have an imagination which allows me to understand how it must be to find a cow amongst prize-winning cabbages. Dolly shall never break into your field again. I give you my word of honor on that point.
