"True friends are always together in spirit."
The author shows us many moments of real friendship. The main heroine, the girl named Anne, has a lot of friends and that’s good. She always can rely on and trust them. True friends are people, who support you in difficult situations. They help you and are always together with you, despite of who you are and how you look. But what does it mean "friend in spirit"? One may not be a philosopher to explain it. "Friend on spirit" is a person, who understands you without words. The one you are there for you any time, the one you can truly trust. He has the same opinions and thoughts. You go together like salt and pepper.
“That is one consolation when you are poor—there are so many more things you can imagine about.”
The author tries to show us the advantage of being poor. A little Anne says to Diana that she always wanted to have beautiful things in her room, which would make it more delightful. But she isn’t sure that she will feel comfortable with it. In her opinion, it is better to leave the space for the imagination and dreams.
Wealthy life spoils people and they become more vain and selfish at all times. Dreams can give the motivation to improve one’s life. It can make you stronger and teach to achieve goals and successes. Dreams, if they are really strong, always come true. That’s why the main heroine likes to dream!
