Guess A Quote (9.29.14)

Life has been running at double-speed for me this past week. Thankfully, it’s all been good stuff to be busy with. I hope you all are having wonderful falls, getting into the swing of school and enjoying whatever fall foods and smells you enjoy. The trees around my home are beginning to change colors, which is always beautiful.

Our last quote came from Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley. Aubrey Lidden and Annie Hawthorne both guessed it correctly. I have not read this book yet, because it never sounded appealing to me. (Plus the green, rubber face-masks worn by trick-or-treaters freaked me out when I was little.) Then, in a writing class I took, the teacher mentioned that Frankenstein was written by 19 year old Mary Shelley as a way of showing that just because science can do something doesn’t mean it should. That description piques my interest, so maybe I’ll read it someday. (Apparently the original Frankenstein was not green with gears sticking out of his neck.) It’s available free for kindle.

Here’s the quote for this week. It comes from a well-known autobiography.

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.

Happy Guessing!

    I think that is from the Diary of Anne Frank. I really like that quote 🙂
    Thank you for writing this blog, I have been following for about a week and have already found some good reads. It is really nice to have a guide to all the literature out there, and I really appreciate the effort you have put into it.
