“After all,” Anne had said to Marilla once, “I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”

Anne of Avonlea, by L.M. Montgomery

“I wish I was a woman of about thirty-six dressed in black satin with a string of pearls.”

Rebecca, by Daphne du Maurier
