Subject: QOTD for Thursday, March 2, 2017

The following quote is taken from An Echo In The Bone by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 82 Dispositions. Copyright © 2009 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

“His own pebble was still in his other hand; he couldn’t quite bring himself to lay it down. Tears were running down his face, and his mother’s hand was on his arm.

“It’s all right, mo duine” she said softly. “Go to your young woman. Ye’ll always be here wi’ us.”

The steam of his tears rose like the smoke of incense from his heart, and he laid the pebble gently on his daughter’s grave. Safe among his family.

It wasn’t until many days later, in the middle of the ocean, that he realized his mother had called him a man.”
