Guess a Quote (1.05.15)

Guess a Quote [How the Grinch]

Wow. The first Guess a Quote of 2015! I hope you all had a wonderful New Years. We did. We watched two movies for New Year’s Eve and went to a friend’s house New Year’s Day, which is always fun.

The last Guess a Quote came from How the Grinch Stole Christmas, by Dr. Seuss. That sure didn’t stump many of you! Lina, Amanda Beguerie, Elisabeth Sullivan, Spencer R., Jennifer Sauer, Lydia, Emily Ruth, Elisheva, Haley Morgan, writefury, Addyson M. Huneke, Wolfen S. Silverfang, Natalie, Hannah R., OnionTea, and moriah all got it right. That may be a record! Any of you who were biting your tongues wanting to geek out about Dr. Seuss are now free to do so! 😉

Now, what would make a good quote for the new year? Well, I can think of one book that’s really important for all year. But to keep it from being too easy, I want to know the book within the book that this quote come from. No peaking! Bonus points if you know the chapter too.

…but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Happy Guessing!

P.S. I’m not going to bother “Temporarily Removing” answers this week unless they are very specific. There have been enough variety in the guesses that I don’t think guesses will be influenced by other responses.

    Woohoo! I’m free! Now, I love How the Grinch Stole Christmas! My family and I watch it every year. Plus, Dr. Seuss is a genius with rhyme (maybe he’s related to Fezzik the Giant? 🙂 )
    I have a problem though: I think your version in this week’s Guess a Quote is a different one than mine, so I don’t know!!!

    Great quote to start the year off with! I am not totally positive but I think it is from Philippians…could be Romans though. That may just be a bias though. I love Romans so I usually want to attribute great quotes to it. 🙂

  3. I’m going to guess, since I’m not exactly sure. I know it’s the Bible, and I think… 1 Timothy?

    Oh! Great idea for a New Year’s quote. I should know this one. I know it’s from one of Paul’s letters but can’t place which one.

  7. Ah, yay, one I know! 😉 The Bible, obviously. Philippians 3:13-14. 🙂

    Ooooh! I love this! Okay, it’s in the Bible, and I won’t say too much but…is it Galatians? I know Paul wrote it, I just read it a few weeks ago. Arghh!

    It’s either Philippians or Ephesians… but I don’t know which one. Whichever, I’m pretty sure I have it highlighted and I’m really tempted to go and look for it. XP

  10. Ooh… that’s hard. I want to say Romans, but that might be wrong. My older sister would probably know!

    I think it’s Phillipians, but I’m not sure what chapter it is…

  13. Philippians, chapter 3.

  14. Ugh, I’m not sure. Obviously the Bible, in the New Testament, by Paul, but not sure which book. Pretty sure which part, but not the book.

  15. This is not related, but I was wondering if you would be interested in writing a guest post for my blog. 🙂

    • Sure, Elisabeth. Why don’t you email me about it. (If you don’t have my email, you can just use the “contact me” page. 😉
