Guess a Quote (10.13.14)

Guess a Quote-Number the Stars

Last week’s quote came from Number the Stars, by Lois Lowry. Good job to Addyson, Morgan Huneke, Lisbeth, Annie Hawthorne, and starshining4ever for guessing correctly. Number the Stars is a book my family discovered as an audio book during a family road trip. As Morgan commented, it’s far different from Lois Lowry’s other books, but very good. It’s actually, of her books that I’ve read, it’s my favorite. (Sorry Giver fans. 😉 )

This week’s quote comes complements of Elisabeth Sullivan. Thanks to Elisabeth for suggesting it. If you have a quote you think would make a great Guess a Quote feature, use the contact form to send it my way.

As the patient eyes were lifted to his face, he saw a sudden doubt in them, and then astonishment. He pressed the work-worn, hunger-worn young fingers, and touched them to his lips.
“Are you dying for him?” she whispered.
“And his wife and child. Hush! Yes.”
“O you will let me hold your brave hand, stranger?”
“Hush! Yes, my poor sister; to the last.”

Happy Guessing!

    Haven’t read it, but I’m going to guess Dicken’s A Tale of Two Cities…

  2. Such a good book… *sighs* 😉

  3. I saw a skit of this once but don’t remember what the skit was of. 🙂 I’m guessing Tale of Two Cities as well.

    Oh my gosh! “A Tale of Two Cities”?? I haven’t read it, but some home school friends did a skit of this bit at their daughter’s graduation! It was so long ago, I’m surprised I remember it so well that I thought of it as soon as I read this quote!

  5. Mmm…again, no clue. Gaaah, so sad! It’s a cool quote though.

    Hopefully the contact form worked for me as well.

    Urgh. I did read Number the Stars, too! One should always consider all her options before impulsively guessing. As for this quote, I have no idea, but it sounds really good!

    “A Tale of Two Cities.” I’d recognize that anywhere. ^_^

  8. “A Tale of Two Cities” by Dickens. Good stuff.
