Subject: QOTD for Saturday, January 17, 2015

The following quote is taken from An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 35, TICONDEROGA, Copyright © 2009 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

       “Oh, just part of the general decline.” I said, trying to make a joke of it. I flexed my right arm, gingerly, feeling a twinge in the elbow. “Things don’t bend quite so easily as they used to. And other things hurt. Sometimes I think I’m falling apart.”

       Jamie closed one eye and regarded me.

       “I’ve felt like that since I was about twenty,” he observed. “Ye get used to it.” He stretched, making his spine give off a series of muffled pops, and held out a hand. “Come to bed, a nighean. Nothing hurts when ye love me.

       He was right, nothing did.

[> [> For Jamie and Claire AND for us. Great week of special moments from each book. It's gotten so sometimes I can't remember where things happened - but every book is so special I can't really say I have a favorite any more. -- Kathy in PA, 11:45:17 01/17/15 Sat

[> Thank you for the kind comments. It is fun to do quote of the day. Believe it or not, I spend an inordinate amount of time sifting through my "working copies" of the books that have a thousand stickie notes on them to come up with a week's worth of quotes. But, I am retired now so it is time to do what I love and I have the time to do it! -- Lady Linda, 12:11:25 01/17/15 Sat
