My Goodreads Quotes

Allison’s quotes


"Don't you think it's rather nice to think that we're in a book that God's writing? If I were writing a book, I might make mistakes. But God knows how to make the story end just right--in the way that's best for us."
Do you really believe that, Mother?" Peter asked quietly.
Yes," she said, "I do believe it--almost always--except when I'm so sad that I can't believe anything. But even when I don't believe it, I know it's true--and I try to believe it."— E. Nesbit

A Question

Hello, readers!  I promise I have unutterably exciting posts planned for later in the week... but now I have a question for you.

My current work-almost-in-progress-I'm-getting-to-it-I-promise requires some imagery concerning childhood.  And so, dear reader... are there any female names that make you powerfully think of youth, innocence, and childhood?  (They don't have to mean these; they just have to, for whatever reason, remind you of them.)

Definitely Lucy because of Narnia. Laura with Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie.

Sophie. April.

I say Rosie. Actually, any girl's name that ends with an "ie" sound makes me think of childhood.
