Subject: QOTD for Tuesday, December 30, 2014. The following quote is taken from The Scottish Prisoner by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 7 “When a Man is Tired of London, He Is Tired of Life”.

He'd imagined it, of course, but God only knew what the reality was. It was big, though;it had to be big. So he'd be prepared.

Aye, prepared for a prison? he thought.

The idea of it, of cold stone and small spaces, endless days, months,
and years in a cage as life and body dwindled inexorably away, shriveled his heart.

[> Big apologies, I messed with the timetables with DH and was unable to send the quote earlier. Then again, this quote is something that can be overtaken soon, with a new one. This unpleasant moment just goes with my theme, -- Helka, 08:30:34 12/30/14 Tue

[> [> Oo, didn't think that far. It's about Jamie's different roles and phases in his life. Sunday was about him as an educated man, though the Grey brothers messed about *G* -- Helka, 10:13:18 12/30/14 Tue

[> Wow! That is a very powerful description of prison, particularly if you going because your crime was wanting freedom? -- LisaW, 13:01:36 12/30/14 Tue

[> This is why Hal and I have a hard time getting along -- because he threatened Jamie wiith prison, not long after Jamie had seen it and it was still so very present how he felt about it. This is an outstanding book -- very underrated among some fans, IMO. -- Rita, 15:57:06 12/30/14 Tue
