Hi, guys. I’m back. Sorry I didn’t get this done yesterday.
It was from The Princess Bride by William Goldman. Both quotes were from Chapter 5: “The Announcement”. The [he] in the first quote was “The Count” and the [it] was “the Fire Swamp”.
And. . . nobody guessed it. Really, I should have seen that coming, since I didn’t think any of you had read it! Anyway, this week’s quote is from a wonderful book I would recommend to anyone:
“. . . Now, when suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but–I hope–into a better shape. Be as considerate and good to me as you were, and tell me we are friends.”
