Quote taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon chapter 56 "Turtle Soup." Copyright (c) 1994 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

"'Aye, well he'll be wed a long time,' he said callously. 'Do him no harm to keep his breeches on for one night. And they do say that abstinence makes the heart grow firmer, no?'

'Absence,' I said, dodging the spoon for a moment. ďAnd fonder. If anythingís growing firmer from abstinence, it wouldnít be his heart.'

'Thatís verra bawdy talk for a respectable marrit woman,' Jamie said reprovingly, sticking the spoon in my mouth. 'And inconsiderate, forbye.'

I swallowed. 'Inconsiderate?'

'Iím a wee bit firm myself at the moment,' he replied evenly, dipping and spooning. 'What wií you sitting there wií your hair loose and your nipples stariní me in the eye, the size of cherries.'Ē
