Subject: Quote of the Day for Friday, December 19, 2014 - - Swarl

William brings Fanny to Jamie’s rooms.

The following quote is taken from Written in My Own Heart's Blood by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 134 "Last Rites". Copyright© 2014 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

"William looked as though someone had hit him on the head, stunning him like an ox bound for slaughter. I looked uncertainly at Jamie, not knowing what to do for either of them. He glanced from one to the other, then rose and quietly took the girl into his arms.
"There, a nighean,” he said quietly, patting her back. His eyes met Willie's and I saw something pass between them - a question asked and answered. Jamie nodded. "I'll care for her," he said.
"Thank you. She . . .Jane," William said with difficulty. "I want to - to bury her. Decently. But I think I can't . . . . claim her."
"Aye," Jamie said. "We'll see to it. Go and do whatever ye need to do. Come back when ye can."

[> "...a question asked and answered..."-Diana often uses this phrase to describe the wordless communication between two people who know each other well. Very nice! :-) -- fionaj, 14:52:16 12/19/14 Fri

[> [> [> What I love about this quote is that they have spoken twice as adult man to man? Maybe 3 times? And yet there is this understanding that passes between father and son. I just love it. -- Swarl, 15:17:34 12/19/14 Fri
