Last week we hit on a quote that plenty of people could “fangirl” over. As many of you already guessed, the quote came from Pride and Prejudice, the beloved Jane Austen classic. Lina-Ruth, Sneha, Elisabeth, Morgan Huneke,Victoria NightSky, proverbs31teen, Brooke, Emily Ruth, Addyson, Amanda Beguerie, littlebookblog, Amanda, Hanna R, and emilydm544 all got it right! Great job, all of you!
Something that particularly amused me last week was two alterations of the original Austen quote. Morgan Huneke provided a “Whovian” version:
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a mad mad in possession of a blue box must be in want of a companion.
And Amanda Beguerie provided a short-girl version from Water Princess, Fire Princess:
It is a fact universally acknowledged that a short girl in pursuit of something above her head must be in want of some young man to get it down for her.
Those fun alterations gave me an idea. In addition to guessing the quote this week, make up your own variation of last weeks quote (you may submit up to three variations). At the end of the week, I’ll compile them and put it up so everyone can vote for a winner. The winner will get a free book or two from me. Go!
And now for this week’s quote. It’s another well-known quote, and one I’m quite fond of.
…there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought [here], that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.
