Compliments – Anne of Avonlea

“But I’d rather look like you than be pretty,” she told Anne sincerely.

Anne laughed, sipped honey from the tribute, and cast away the sting.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

Compliments. I love them.

An honest compliment has the power to make anyone’s mood better. What do you think?

This is a line from Anne of Avonlea, one of my favorite books when I was growing up. Anne is not your conventional beauty, she is a bit of a fiery red-head and also has a steady head on her shoulders…those who recognize her true beauty are truly smitten.
