Hello 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.”
