How we cite our quotes:

Emily appreciates the natural world better when she is in love.
Nature’s been pushing and contriving in other ways, too: a number of young people fell in love and got married. (II.9)
Love and marriage are natural parts of life.
I don’t see how he could give up a thing like that just to get married. (II.37)
Si Crowell doesn’t see how marriage could possibly be more important than baseball. Are these just the reflections of a young boy or a key opinion that runs contrary to the widely accepted norm?
