Guess a Quote (8.27.13)

Question MarkGood morning everyone!

Last week’s quote came from The Abolitionist. The Abolitionist is a challenging story about a young woman who learns to stand up for what she believes, even when her stance is frowned upon by society. I reviewed it a few weeks ago. Congratulations to OnionTea, who correctly guess where the quote was from.

And now for this week’s quote. From looking at Goodreads, I know quite a few of you have read this classic, and several of you want to read it.

Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but – I hope – into a better shape.

Happy Guessing!

    EEEEEE!!!! Oh, that’s Great Expectations by Charles Dickens!!! Haha, I recognized it right away… the funny thing is, I’ve never read the book before! But I know it because I gave an unsuccessful speech on Depression, and this quote was near the end, where I encouraged that suffering is more often a form of teaching than of punishment, and though we may be battered and broken by it, we will be made into a better shape by God. 🙂 So that quote is memorized!

    • XD Loving the enthusiastic response, Karis.

        Hahaha. ;D
        It’s not fair reading your blog and not knowing you in person. That’s the shortcoming of Internet!
        Well in my defense it’s a wonderful book and quote, and it’s one of the few quotes I recognize!

        • I understand that difficulty.

          And I loved the enthusiasm. It makes me happy when you all get into the quote or review or whatever. 😉 Makes things more fun.

    Aagh! I KNOW I’ve read the book that this is from, but the title is eluding me. Why, just why?!
