WENN DU NACH MUT, KRAFT, FREUDE ODER INSPIRATION SUCHST, DANN LIES DAS HIER.

Anne of Green Gables ist die englische Pippi Langstrumpf. Das Kinderbuch der kanadischen Autorin Lucy Maud Montgomery ist im Jahr 1908 erschienen und gilt als Astrid Lindgrens Lieblingsbuch. Pippi Langstrumpfs Charakter ist an dem der temperamentvollen rothaarigen Anne angelehnt.

Zum Inhalt:
Anne of Green Gables erzählt die Geschichte des Waisenkindes Anne Shirley, das im Kanada des späten 19. Jahrhunderts durch eine Verwechslung zu den Cuthberts nach Green Gables kommt. Sie ist ein vor Fantasie blühendes und immerzu träumendes Mädchen mit feurig roten Haaren, das ihre ganz eigene Sicht auf die Welt entwickelt. Die beiden älteren Geschwister Matthew und Marilla Cuthbert haben eigentlich einen Jungen erwartet, der ihnen bei der Farmarbeit zur Hand gehen soll. Doch nach vielen Überlegungen beschließen die Cuthberts, das Mädchen doch zu behalten.

Dieses Buch gibt dir das Gefühl von unendlicher Dankbarkeit, am Leben zu sein. Es ist Poesie im Alltag und wunderbar erfrischend.
Als kleine Leseprobe habe ich dir hier die schönsten Zitate zusammengesucht. Es ist genau die richtige Lektüre für einen gemütlichen Sonntag mit heißem Kakao und Kuscheldecke, während draußen der erste Schnee fällt.

“Why must people kneel down to pray? If I really wanted to pray I’ll tell you what I’d do. I’d go out into a great big field all alone or in the deep, deep woods and I’d look up into the sky—up—up—up—into that lovely blue sky that looks as if there was no end to its blueness. And then I’d just feel a prayer.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

“It has always seemed to me. ever since early childhood, amid all the commonplaces of life, i was very near to a kingdom of ideal beauty. Between it and me hung only a thin veil.

L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

“I’ve had a splendid time,“ she concluded happily, „and I feel that it marks an epoch in my life. But the best of it all was the coming home.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

 

“How sadly things had changed since she had sat there the night after coming home! Then she had been full of hope and joy and the future had looked rosy with promise. Anne felt as if she had lived years since then, but before she went to bed there was a smile on her lips and peace in her heart. She had looked her duty courageously in the face and found it a friend–as duty ever is when we meet it frankly.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

 

“He smiled his shy smile at her as he went into the yard. Anne took the memory of it with her when she went to her room that night and sat for a long while at her open window, thinking of the past and dreaming of the future. Outside the Snow Queen was mistily white in the moonshine; the frogs were singing in the marsh beyond Orchard Slope. Anne always remembered the silvery, peaceful beauty and fragrant calm of that night. It was the last night before sorrow touched her life; and no life is ever quite the same again when once that cold, sanctifying touch has been laid upon it.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

 

“Well, anyway, when I am grown up,” said Anne decidedly, “I’m always going to talk to little girls as if they were too, and I’ll never laugh when they use big words. I know from sorrowful experience how that hurts one’s feelings.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

 

“God is in His heaven. All is right in the world.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

 

“But Anne with her elbows on the window sill, her soft cheek laid against her clasped hands, and her eyes filled with visions, looked out unheedingly across city roof and spire to that glorious dome of sunset sky and wove her dreams of a possible future from the golden tissue of youth’s own optimism. All the Beyond was hers, with its possibilities lurking rosily in the oncoming years — each year a rose of promise to be woven into an immortal chaplet.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
