"Anne, who was always called Nan, was very pretty, with velvety nut-brown eyes and silky nut-brown hair. She was a very blithe and dainty little maiden—Blythe by name and blithe by nature, one of her teachers had said. Her complexion was quite flawless, much to her mother’s satisfaction."
- Rainbow Valley, L.M. Montgomery
"Di is her father’s favorite, because she has green eyes and red hair… red hair with a swirl to it."
- Anne Blythe on her daughter Diana, Anne of Ingleside, L.M. Montgomery
