Anyway. Last week’s quote came from The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett. CJ and Emily Ruth both got it right. Do any of you have a favorite movie version of the story?
Here’s the quote for this week. It’s from another popular children’s book. If you’ve read it or watched the movie I think it’ll be pretty obvious.
“You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what’s a life, anyway? We’re born, we live a little while, we die. A spider’s life can’t help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone’s life can stand a little of that.”
