"But anne, a broken heart in real life isn't half as dreadful as it is in books. It's a good deal like a bad tooth...though you wont think that a very romantic simile. It takes a spell of aching and gives you a sleepless night now and then, but between times it lets you enjoy life and dreams and echoes and peanut candy as if there were nothing the matter with it." -Anne of Avonlea (Miss Lavendar)
