"From the moment I met you, all those years ago, not a day has gone by when I haven’t thought of you. And now that I’m with you again… I’m in agony. The closer I get to you, the worse it gets. The thought of not being with you—I can’t breathe. I’m haunted by the kiss that you should never have given me. My heart is beating, hoping that kiss will not become a scar. You are in my very soul, tormenting me…"

I’m listening to the Anne of Green Gables audio books (or, at least, the first three) kind of just to pass the time at work…and I discover the older I get, the less I relate to Anne (at times I find her rather tiresome, hilariously enough) and the more I relate to Marilla.
The most affecting parts of the original novel are, to me, the descriptions of how this sensible middle-aged spinster eking out an honest, but not particularly warm, existence grows to love Anne so much that her thoroughly Presbyterian heart is afraid she might be making an idol of the child.
