Subject: QOTD for Thursday, January 2, 2015 The following quote is taken from The Scottish Prisoner by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 11 “Vulgar Curiosity”. Copyright (c) 2011 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.


     "He is Scotch and a Highlander, to boot."

     "Meaning what?" She was interested; one brow arched upward. "Is he such a savage as people say Highlanders are?
Because if so, he apes the gentleman to an amazing degree."

     "James Fraser apes nothing," he assured her, feeling an obscure sense of offense on Fraser's behalf.
He is—or was—a landed gentleman, and one of breeding, with substantial property and tenants.
What I meant is that he has . . . " He hesitated, not quite sure how to put it into words.
". . . a sense of himself that is quite separate from what society demands. He is inclined to make his own rules."
