Subject: Quote of the Day for Monday, April 13

The following quote is taken from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 13, A Marriage is Announced.

"St. Ninian's spring. Ye drank the water before I asked ye."

I was thoroughly bewildered by this time.

"What does that have to do with it?"

He looked surprised, then his mouth twisted in a smile. "Ye didna know? They call it the liar's spring , as well. The water smells o' the fumes of hell. Anyone who drinks the water and then tells untruth will ha' the gizzard burnt out of him."
