For me, it was a revelation. There, was revealed a completely different Anne to the child that I had lost. I had no idea of the depths of her thoughts and feelings.
If it's a penny for your thoughts and you put in your two cents worth, then someone, somewhere is making a penny.
To a mind like mine, restless, inquisitive, and observant of everything that was passing, it is easy to suppose that religion was the subject to which it would be directed; and, although this subject principally occupied my thoughts, there was nothing that I saw or heard of to which my attention was not directed.
One of the disadvantages of wine is that it makes a man mistake words for thoughts.
A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.
