More Gentian Hill quotes

"Going upstairs to bed was one of the things which Stella enjoyed. There was a special savor about this moment of leaving the ground floor of the house where the work of the day had taken place, with its attendant hurry and worry, and perhaps misunderstandings and sorrows too, and mounting up away from it all like an angel into heaven. She was sorry for people who lived in small cottages, sleeping on the same floor where they worked, who could not enjoy this lovely slow ascension to restfulness and peace." (p. 46-47).

"But to Stella the world was still so full of surprises that all the ordinary happenings of life seemed as wonderful as fairy tales, and conversely, fairy tales did not seem anything out of the ordinary." (p. 57).
