Guess a Quote (7.01.13)

Question MarkGood morning, everyone! Finally, a post that’s going out on time. 😉 Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed our annual chapel picnic after Sunday services yesterday. Especially good since during the egg toss the egg broke on my friend not me. 😛 (Just kidding!)

Last week OnionTea did some good detective work. She knew which series the quote was from but not which specific book in the series. So she went to the library and found the quote. Great job, OnionTea! Annie Hawthorne also knew which series the quote came from.

And, speaking of Annie Hawthorne, I put out a request for Guess a Quote suggestions last week, and she responded. So this week’s quote comes complements of Annie. If you ever want to make a suggestion for Guess a Quote day, I’d love to have it/them. Just email them to me using the Contact Me form. And please make sure all suggested books/quotes are in keeping with the conservative nature of this blog.

Without further ado, here’s the quote. It’s from a book that’s been on my to-read list for a looong time.

Then I saw the shadow. It was the shadow of a man with a hat on. At first I thought it was a tree, but there was no wind blowing, and tree-trunks never walked.

Happy Guessing!

On a side note, a post from Marli Renee’s blog came into my email this morning. It’s a guest post called Modesty Confessions. I really liked it so I thought I’d share it with you all.

  1. Hmmm… It sounds vaguely like A Hundred Cupboards, or Dandelion Fire by N.D. Wilson? Not sure though. Thanks for the blog shout out 🙂

  2. Oooohhhh… That embaressing moment when you miss a quote from one of your absolute favourite, most quoted, read and re-read books of all time. I need a cone of shame.

    • Haha. In that case I won’t bother removing the titles you mentioned first. What are those stories about?

      • They are a two-part fantasy series, aimed at elementary/early middle schoolers. One of the only pieces of modern children’s fantasy I have enjoyed, outside of a few pieces by Kate Dicamillo. The Christian themes are particularly strong in the second book, but a bit more complex and subtle than most. Worth a quick read 🙂

    I suppose it would be cheating for me to guess a quote that I provided? 😉
