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.

“I will find you,” he whispered in my ear. “I promise. If I must endure two hundred years of purgatory, two hundred years without you-then that is my punishment, which I have earned for my crimes. For I have lied, and killed, and stolen; betrayed and broken trust. But there is the one thing that shall lie in the balance. When I shall stand before God, I shall have one thing to say, to weigh against the rest.”

His voice dropped, nearly to a whisper, and his arms tightened around me.

“Lord, ye gave me a rare woman, and God! I loved her well.”

[> I have to say this is one of my all time favorite quotes. It makes me a bit teary each time I read it, even now. To have a love like that, a love that lives forever, even if it's only in a fairy tale, I want to believe it exists. -- CarolSR, 14:40:21 01/21/16 Thu

[> [> I agree Carol. Teary eyed and goosebumps at that fierce declaration/prayer of the last line. -- Kathy in PA, 04:10:40 01/22/16 Fri

[> [> I agree also. This is the kind of love that we all long for. -- LisaW, 05:46:36 01/22/16 Fri

[> [> [> I think many of us may even have this kind of love. But our Loves can't verbalize it, may not recognize it, even. Years ago, in our younger days, my Love said to me in a whisper "It doesn't matter where you go or who you're with when I am gone... I will find you. You are mine. Forever." Of course, he denies saying it now. Doesn't remember it at all. But he did and I heard him and I'LL never forget. -- Betsy Barefootspinner, 06:36:37 01/22/16 Fri
