One of these days I should make a WWAD? (What Would Anne Do?) shirt.  Best adolescent inspiration, truly.

“Miss Barry was a kindred spirit after all,” Anne confided to Marilla, “You wouldn’t think so to look at her, but she is. . . Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.”
