Quotes

Narrator: [narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal] There's a fine moment in our lives when we are young and innocent and our hearts first awaken to the mystery and pain of love. At such a time we can give our love freely, without fear of hurt or pain. The arrival of a new, young minister in town caused my father to witness such an awakening in the heart of my sister, Elizabeth.
