Guess a Quote (7.08.13)

Question MarkHello everyone. I hope you had a lovely weekend. On Saturday friends came over for a cookout, and then we headed over to watch our town’s fireworks. On the actual 4th we went to a patriotic event which included a reading of the Declaration of Independence. They also read Patrick Henry’s address to the House of Burgess. If you’ve never read or heard it before, I strongly recommend you look it up. It’s probably my favorite historical speech.

Last week’s quote came from To Kill A Mockingbird. Many thanks to Annie Hawthorne for providing the quote. No one commented with the correct title, though I believe Marli Renee did figure out what book it was from.

This week’s quote also comes complements of Annie Hawthorne. She’s commented that it is a lesser known classic, so, Annie, if you’d like, perhaps you could provide a clue in the comments section to help people figure it out. 😉

“At length, however, he broke the pause by asking, with a certain quiet abruptness peculiar to himself, if I liked flowers.
‘Yes; very much,’ I answered, ‘wild flowers especially.’
‘_I_ like wild flowers,’ said he, ‘others I don’t care about, because I have no particular associations connected with them – except one or two.”

Happy Guessing!

    Okay! Here’s the clue…

    It was written by one of the Bronte sisters (not Charlotte). It’s very sweet and lovely story, full of goodness. I highly recommend it to everybody!!

  2. Hey Leah, 🙂
    I haven’t read it but the only other story by a Bronte sister that I know and that isn’t by Charlotte is Wuthering Heights.
