At Seventeen

"'Now, Anne, don't look as if you were trying to understand. Seventeen can't understand.'" -L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

"'I'm so glad you're here, Anne,' said Miss Lavendar, nibbling at her candy. 'If you weren't I should be blue…very blue…almost navy blue. Dreams and make-believes are all very well in the daytime and the sunshine, but when dark and storm come they fail to satisfy. One wants real things then. But you don't know this…seventeen never knows it. At seventeen dreams do satisfy because you think the realities are waiting for you further on.'" -L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

"'How sympathetic you look, Anne…as sympathetic as only seventeen can look.'" -L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea
