Guess a Quote (12.31.12)

Question MarkHere’s the last post of 2012 and the end of my first year of blogging. It’s weird to realize that I’ve only been doing this for one year. It seems like longer.

Last week’s quote was from A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens. Congrats to Maiden-in-Waiting and starshining4ever for getting it right (and thanks to Marli Renee for giving them some extra hints :)).

Ready for this week’s quote? I don’t know if there is such a thing as a New Years story. If there is, let me know, because I’ve never heard of one. I decided to close out the year with a quote from one of my favorite stories. It should be quite easy for most of you to guess. And, yes, it’s from another classic.

“Whatever comes,” she said, “cannot alter one thing. If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it.”

Happy guessing!

    “A Little Princess,” of course… Here’s a New Year’s Resolution from it though: strive to make this a quote from the story of your life, not just Sara’s. Though we live in a world of “rags and tatters” our King always sees us clothed in his beauty, as His Little Princesses, so let’s live up to our title, shall we? 🙂

    “Every little girl IS a princess, and there would be no need to say anything about it, except that she is always in danger of forgetting her rank, and behaving as of she had grown out of the mud. I have seen little princesses behave like the children of thieves and lying beggars, and that is why they need to be told they are princesses.”
    ~George MacDonald, “The Princess and the Goblin”

    ‘Nuff said. 😀

    Have a Royal New Year everyone!
