"The unsung beauty hid
life’s common things below
Chronicles of Avonlea – Epigraph[src]

This quote is taken from Songs of Labor by John Greenleaf Whittier.[1]

"Do I sleep, do I dream, do I wonder and doubt?
Is things what they seem, or is visions about?
—"The Winning of Lucinda" (Chronicles of Avonlea)[src]

This is a quote from a poem called "Further Language from Truthful James" by Bret Harte. Note that the wording has been changed slightly: in the original, the line is "Are things what they seem", whereas in Chronicles of Avonlea it is rendered as "Is things what they seem".[2]
