Guess a Quote (7.15.13)

Question MarkHello everyone! It looks like Annie Hawthorne succeeded in stumping all of you with last week’s quote. The quote came from Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte. I have not read the book, so I would have been stumped right along with the rest of you. 😉

As long as we’re on the topic of classics, here’s a quote from a classic story that’s a bit more well known.

Gentle reader, may you never feel what I then felt! May your eyes never shed such stormy, scalding, heart-wrung tears as poured from mine. May you never appeal to Heaven in prayers so hopeless and so anguished as in that hour left my lips: for never may you, like me, dread to be the instrument of evil to what you wholly love.

Happy Guessing!

    Jane Eyre! Oh that book…that book. So precious. Such an intimate, spiritual journey. I love it to pieces.

    I wondered if anyone would guess the quote I shared correctly…next time I shall do my best to pick something that isn’t quite so difficult. 🙂 Speaking if quotes, this one is from “Jane Eyre”! I recognized it immediately. ^.^ It’s actually a bit of an amusing coincidence you sharing this quote because some of my friends and I were just discussing how somebody needs to make an adaption of Jane Eyre where Richard Armitage plays the part of Mr. Rochester. Because he would be amazing in that part. *nodsnodsnods*

  4. Hi!
    I like your blog. I’m writing a book right now; maybe when I get done with it you will review it for me?
    Anyway I’ll keep reading.

    • I did a Homeschooled Author themed month a while back. Perhaps your book could be included if I did another of those. 😉
