It’s our twentieth “Mystery Quote”! Can you believe it?
And, today is September 22nd–Bilbo and Frodo’s shared birthday, for those of you who haven’t read The Lord of the Rings so many times that you remember all the dates. Some people at our house are crazy enough to celebrate fantastical characters birthdays, and wore their Middle Earth shirts today. 🙂
Anyway, “Mystery Quote”:
Last week’s quote was from Lazy Tinka by Kate Seredy.
Spencer correctly guessed the book and author, and Ellen. . . sort of did. 🙂
I realized right before I sat down to write this that I was actually going to need a book in order to post quotes, so I grabbed this one that I read recently:
“It’s not much of a world, is it? Is it worth trying to bring [her] back into it?” [She] stood still in the road. “Yes!” she cried, and [he] was astounded to see that tears had sprung into her eyes. . . “If only I could make you see, somehow that it is! All this” she exclaimed, the sweep of her arm including the deepening blue of the sky, the shining lake in the distance, the snow-covered mountains far to the north. “So much! You must look at it all. . . not just the unhappy things.”
Hint: No, it's not from The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit. I wanted to use one of those, but decided it would be too easy! :)
