Hello 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.
