Subject: Quote of the Day for Tuesday, December 9, 2014

The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 52 "A Wedding Takes Place". Copyrightę 1994 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

"I want him." I had not said that to Jamie at our marriage; I had not wanted him, then. But I had said it since, three times; in two moments of choice at Craigh na Dun, and once again at Lallybroch.
"I want him." I wanted him still, and nothing whatever could stand between us.
He was looking down at me; I could feel the wight of his gaze, dark blue and tender as the sea at dawn.
"What are ye thinking, mo chridhe?" he asked softly.
I blinked back the tears and smiled at him. His hands were large and warm on mine.
"What I tell you three times is true," I said. And standing on tiptoe, I kissed him as the sailors' cheer went up.

[> Twenty years for me too. Read it when it came out in 1994, and countless rereads after, it still resonates in exactly the same way as if I was reading it for the first time -- Rita, 15:45:10 12/09/14 Tue

[> What's interesting about this quote, "What I tell you 3x is true" is I first read it in one of Mary Stewart's books but it has been so long since I read any of her books, (all my books are currently in storage, wah) I no longer remember which book it was. I think it was "Nine Coaches Waiting". It would be interesting to find out where the quote originated. -- Connee, 18:39:45 12/09/14 Tue
