I remembered several months ago when I read Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, I found that I love Anne Shirley so much. This little girl’s thoughts were unbelievably almost exactly the same as what I’ve thought, which were very few people could understand.
I marked many quotes there, here is one of them:
“You set your heart too much on things, Anne,” said Marilla, with a sigh. “I’m afraid there’ll be a great many disappointments in store for you through life.”
“Oh, Marilla, looking forward to things is half the pleasure of them,” exclaimed Anne. “You mayn’t get the things themselves; but nothing can prevent you from having the fun of looking forward to them. Mrs. Lynde says, ‘Blessed are they who expect nothing for they shall not be disappointed.’ But I think it would be worse to expect nothing than to be disappointed.”
Don’t be afraid of dreaming, don’t lose hope, because the process is what really matter.
