Guess a Quote (6.09.14)

Question MarkHello everyone. No June birthdays, huh? Oh well. I hope y’all are getting more reading done than I am. Between trying finish editing my book and life in general, I haven’t had much time for reading. Ah well. I’ll probably make up for it at some point and read five books in a single week.

Last week’s quote was a lot of fun. (At least I thought so.) A whole list of “clues” describing the one and only Sherlock Holmes. The quote came from A Study in Scarlet, by Sir Aurthur Conan Doyle. The guesses this week came in a wider variety than usual. Some people got the right title, some got the right series, some got the right author, some got the right character, and some got a combination of everything above. The guessers were Emily Ruth, Elisheva, starshining4ever, Elisabeth Sullivan, CJ, Morgan Huneke, and Becky B. Good job y’all!

Now for this week’s quote. I’m going to give you two quotes to help you guess this children’s classic.

Saying good night to the mountains, the sun throws his most beautiful rays to them, that they may not forget him till the morning.

God is good to all of us. He knows what we need better than we do. And just because he thinks it is better not to give you what you want right now doesn’t mean he isn’t answering you. You shall have what you ask for but not until the right time comes.

Happy Guessing!

  1. I think it’s from Heidi, but our translations aren’t exactly the same as the quote. They seem to be essentially the same, though.

    Heidi by Johanna Spyri 🙂

    I’m really not sure, as I only heard it read a long time ago, but Morgan Huneke’s comment about German gave me the idea: Heidi, by Johanna Spyri.
