Jo wasn’t a heroine; she was only a struggling human girl, like hundreds of others, and she just acted out her nature, being sad, cross, listless or energetic, as the mood suggested. It’s highly virtuous to say we’ll be good, but we can’t do it all at once, and it takes a long pull, a strong pull, and a pull all together, before some of us even get our feet set in the right way.
Reading Little Women, and i must say i love the character of Amy.
She is immature but she’s only 12 and she has a kind heart, she will grow.
I ship also Laurie/Amy , don’t get the hate for the pairing, i’ve read things…like hating “little women” just because their fav pairing (JoLaurie) didn’t happened…WHAT? you hate a book because of shipping??? Just because the pairing you made up in your mind didn’t happen?? CRAZY, and immature, much more immature than Amy.
Some people are still wondering why JoLarie didn’t happened, well you know, to make a pair you need two, and Jo didn’t love Lourie that way, for her he was a friend and a brother, it’s so difficult to get it? Do you say yes to any boys you get along with? No of course- if they respect Jo character the way they say they should respect her decision.
If you feel your value lies in being merely decorative I fear that someday you might find yourself believing that’s all that you really are. Time erodes all such beauty, but what it cannot diminish is the wonderful work inside your mind, your humor, your kindness, and your moral courage.
There are many Beths in the world, shy and quiet, sitting in corners till needed, and living for others so cheerfully that no one sees the sacrifices till the little cricket on the hearth stops chirping, and the sweet, sunshiny presence vanishes, leaving silence and shadow behind.
Jo March - I’m ugly and awkward and I always say the wrong things. I fly around throwing away perfectly good marriage proposals. I love our home, but I’m just so fitful and I can’t stand being here! I’m sorry, I’m sorry Marmee. There’s just something really wrong with me. I want to change, but I - I can’t. And I just know I’ll never fit in anywhere.
Marmee March: Oh, Jo. Jo, you have so many extraordinary gifts; how can you expect to lead an ordinary life? You’re ready to go out and - and find a good use for your talent. Tho’ I don’t know what I shall do without my Jo. Go, and embrace your liberty. And see what wonderful things come of it.
Phew! My Graphic Design Class is Over! What a way to end it with a Book Cover re-design of a Classic. In case you did not guess, I did “Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott. This class really challenged me, I struggled through most of the assignments, not because of the software we where using but because I process too pictorially then graphically. I want to be more then just an illustrator I want to branch out and grow into a better graphic designer. Through all the struggle, this cover came out of me so naturally that I feel like Im on the right path.
I would like to thank, my biggest fan, Mom. Everyone at Work you know who you are! Palace Cakes on Yamhill & 13th Thanks for keeping my drawing fingers warm! And My old College Professors, dang guys thanks for teaching beyond the syllabus!
