Guess a Quote (11.11.14)

Guess a Quote [21 Balloons]

I’m finally back with a new Guess a Quote! Have you been waiting in suspense? 🙂 Only one person guessed our last quote. Amanda had shared with us a fun quote from The Twenty-One Balloons, by William Pene du Bois. Addyson guessed the correct book. I’m impressed! How many of you have read The Twenty-One Balloons or have it on your to-read list?

Here’s the quote for this week. It’s from a popular allegory.

She had the feeling that somehow, in the very far-off places, perhaps even in far-off ages, there would be a meaning found to all sorrow and an answer too fair and wonderful to be as yet understood.

Happy Guessing!

    Is it the Chronicles of Narnia?

    I’m really liking your blog so far. 🙂

    I have no idea where the quote is from, but it’s sure a good one! I have never heard of “The Twenty One Balloons.”
    By the way, I read “In His Image” (even though it was technically Spencer’s– we’re probably going to read a lot of each other’s books! 🙂 ) and I LOVED it! It was pretty emotional, but I like emotional books, so that didn’t bother me at all! I didn’t know there really was much Christian Science Fiction out there, so it was really fun. I think I like that genre, but I’m not really around it much, so I’m not sure!
    Wow! I just wrote a BOOK! I’d better stop! 🙂

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed “In His Image.” You should read “Radialloy,” the first book in the series too. And Miss Pennington just published a third book in the series as well. I haven’t read it yet, but I’m looking forward to doing so!

        I am hoping to read “Radialloy” already! “In His Image” could be a stand-alone, but I was wondering how many of the things they tell you happened in the past are covered in the first one. What is the name of the third book?

  3. Hmm…never read this quote, but I like it!

    Thanks, Leah! And I won’t blame you if you didn’t spell it right! 🙂 She seems to give her books interesting names!
