Subject: Quote of the Day, December , 2015 The following quote is taken from Drums Of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 16, The First Law of Thermodynamics. Copyright ©1997 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

     ”Fréserière, eh? Mr Strawberry? He grew them, did he, or was he only fond of eating them?”
     ”Either or both,” he said dryly, “or it was maybe only that he was a redhead, aye?”
     I laughed, and he hunkered beside me, unpinning his plaid.
     ”It’s a rare plant,” he said, touching the sprig in my open hand.
“Flowers, fruit and leaves all together at the same time.
The white flowers are for honor, and red fruit for courage−and the green leaves are for constancy.”

**********

It’s our 98th Independence Day and our symbols are the blue white crossed flag and a Lion coat of arms.
The flag colours represent the blue clear sky, sea and lakes and the white snow and the cross symbols the Christianity and links us to other Northern countries.

The Lion, a sword raised up and trampling on a curved sabre links us to Western Europe.
