Guess a Quote (5.17.15)

Beowulf [Guess a Quote]Hey everyone! Two weeks into my new job and I’m considering blogging only once a week for a while. My idea is to alternate and do a book review one week and a guess a quote the next. Thoughts? Hate the idea? Love it? Neutral?

Anyway. Our last quote came from Beowulf. Mark, writefury, and Hanna R. all guessed correctly! Good job everyone! 🙂

Here’s a quote from a book often spoken of alongside Beowulf.

As for man, his days are numbered, whatever he might do, it is but wind.

Happy Guessing!

  1. Ooh, I know this…but I can’t place it. I know I’ve read it, though.

    The blogging once a week sounds good to me! (And then you’ll have even more time to work on writing! 🙂 )

  2. Sounds vaguely familiar, but I don’t think I’ve read it.

    I completely understand. Once a week sounds just fine, as does alternating. Do what you have to, I promise I (and probably no one) will disappear on you in a mad huff. 😉

  3. No clue. 😛

    Yes, the once a week sounds great! 🙂

  4. Not sure mine counts because I only figured it out seeing other people’s comments. . . can’t believe I didn’t get it on my own, I just read that book! I read a different translation though, which might be why I didn’t.
    You posting less sounds awful, but if that’s all you’ve got time for, I’ll survive. 🙂
    Not sure what book the new quote is from either.

  5. My first thought was Epic of Gilgamesh. Then I looked it up and discovered I was right!
