Hello everyone! Last week’s quote was a smashing success. As one reader pointed out, “Post anything about The Scarlet Pimpernel and it’s like bees to honey!” In case you missed that reference, last week’s quote was from The Scarlet Pimpernel. Melody, Hannah and Maiden-in-Waiting all got the quote right. Congrats!
This weeks quote is from one of my favorite Lamplighter books. It is not the first line of the book. Happy guessing. 🙂
The Prince laid his hand on [the older man’s] shoulder. “After the first day in the forest with boys of my own age I had forgiven you,” he said. “Though roughly treated at first, I learned quickly the lesson that ‘humility comes before honor.’ I have learned, sir, that ‘a man who is diligent in his work may stand before kings and not before mean men,’ and hard work mixed with humility and truth may just prepare him to be a king!”
What book is this quote from?
