// a kindred spirit //

"BUT PEARLS ARE FOR TEARS, THE OLD LEGEND SAYS," GILBERT HAD OBJECTED. 

"I'M NOT AFRAID OF THAT. AND TEARS CAN BE HAPPY AS WELL AS SAD. 
MY HAPPIEST MOMENTS HAVE BEEN WITH TEARS IN MY EYES, 
WHEN MARILLA TOLD ME I MIGHT STAY AT GREEN GABLES,
 WHEN MATTHEW GAVE ME THE FIRST PRETTY DRESS I EVER HAD,
 WHEN I HEART THAT YOU WERE GOING TO RECOVER FROM THE FEVER. 
SO GIVE ME THE PEARLS FOR OUR TROTH RING, GILBERT, AND I'LL WILLING ACCEPT THE SORROW OF LIFE WITH ITS JOY."

  3. I had no idea...
    No one else could have played Gilbert like he did. The movies themselves are close to my heart, it's upsetting to hear this.

  4. Your post is so beautiful, Evelyn. I absolutely adore that first quote.
    Jonathan Crombie will indeed be the one and only Gilbert for all time. :'(
