Guess a Quote (8.12.14)

Guess a Quote [8.12.14]Hello everyone! Back for another round of Guess a Quotes. I decided to get fancy with the image this week and add a picture of the book cover from last week’s quote.

As you can see, last week’s quote came from The Yearling, by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. I think my family listened to the audio version of this story a bunch of years ago. All I remember is that it’s about a deer, and the deer likes to eat the garden, and it has a sad ending. Have any of you read it recently enough to remember more details?

Here is the quote for this week. Two quotes actually. I liked both of these so much I couldn’t decide between them.

For he that does good, having the unlimited power to do evil, deserves praise not only for the good which he performs, but for the evil which he forbears.

Chivalry!—why, maiden, she is the nurse of pure and high affection—the stay of the oppressed, the redresser of grievances, the curb of the power of the tyrant —Nobility were but an empty name without her, and liberty finds the best protection in her lance and her sword.

Happy Guessing

Don’t forget that there are only two days left to pledge to the Kickstarter campaign!

    Had to look the quotes up, so I’m not going to guess (though, after I looked I felt dumb, because I should have known that!) Great quotes either way! Especially love the first one.

    And, the writer in me feels compelled to tell you it’s a “deer” not a “dear” 😉 Haven’t read the book so I don’t know anymore beyond that…

    I am like 99% sure it’s “Ivanhoe” by Sir Walter Scott, but I can’t quite place where or who says it, and I couldn’t find it in my book! Assuming I’m correct, that’s one of my favorite books!
