Subject: QOTD for Monday, September 21st 2015

The following quote is taken from Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 46 Timor Mortis Conturbat Me. Copyright (c) 1992 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

“ ‘Claire,’ he said quietly. ‘Tomorrow I will die. This child....is all that will be left of me - ever. I ask ye, Claire - I beg you - see it safe.’
I stood still, vision blurring, and in that moment, I heard my heart break. It was a small, clean sound, like the snapping of a flower's stem.
At last I bent my head to him, the wind grieving in my ears.
‘Yes,’ I whispered. ‘Yes, I'll go.’”

[> I can hear that sound in my ears when I read this quote, every time. She left to save all that Jamie Fraser was to her and his family. She would make sure that he lived on until they were together again. -- LisaW, 05:46:18 09/21/15 Mon

[> It breaks my heart to imagine what she would have been going through. The realisation that she has to leave him. The writing in this chapter is just wonderful -- Gwen, 13:38:33 09/21/15 Mon
