Anne of the Green Gables: Chapter IV -- Morning at Green Gables: "Oh, I don't mean just the tree; of course it's lovely--yes, it's radiantly lovely--it blooms as if it meant it--but I meant everything, the garden and the orchard and the brook and the woods, the whole big dear world. Don't you feel as if you just loved the world on a morning like this? And I can hear the brook laughing . Have you ever noticed what cheerful things brooks are? They're always laughing"
