Subject: QOTD for Wednesday, January 10, 2024

The following quotation is from Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone by Diana Gabaldon. Copyright 2022 All Rights Reserved. Chapter 34 The Son Of A Preacher-Man


“You started it, Da,” Brianna said now, amused. “But I noticed you didn’t pick a virtuous name at the meeting.”

He’s already got the names of three Scottish kings,” Roger protested. “He’ll be gettin’ above himself if ye give him any more to play with.”

“You didn’t pick one, either, did you, Mama?” I could see the wheels turning in Bree’s mind, and moved to forestall her.

“Er . . . how about Gentleness?” I said, causing many of those at the table to burst into laughter.

“Is Ruthlessness a virtue?” Jamie said, grinning at me.

“Probably not,” I said, rather coldly. “Though I suppose it depends on the circumstances.”

“True,” he said, and taking my hand, kissed it. “Resolve, then - or maybe Resolution?”

“Well, Resolution Fraser does have a certain ring to it,” I said. “I have one for you, too.”

“Oh, aye?”

“Endurance.”

He didn’t stop smiling, but a certain look of ruefulness came into his eyes.

“Aye,” he said. “That’ll do.”

[> [> OMG, that’s a tough one. Lol. Pick one I hope for? Have to look them up and see if I qualify. Hope you’re ok after the storms; our rain is done but the wind’s still blowing strong. -- Kathy in PA, Wed, January 10 2024, 4:46:54

[> [> [> Right now we're dealing with leaks since a branch fell on the roof during Sunday's snow storm. So right now, Endurance seems appropriate for me, too. Otherwise, I think Reliable or Constance might fit. -- kgp, Wed, January 10 2024, 8:32:40

[> [> I think for myself it would be Optimism. I'm very much a Glass is Half Full kind of person. In fact, I'm grateful to have a glass, which is refillable. If it's chipped, drink from the other side! My favorite expression (which both DD & DS have tattoos of) is "Don't Borrow Trouble." -- DianaH, Wed, January 10 2024, 10:01:38

[> [> I think my name should be Patience, because I frequently am in need of it.....I'm in Detroit and we were supposed to get snowmegedon. We didn't get a full inch, and it is melting almost as fast as it comes down. We do have wind, though. -- Janet, Wed, January 10 2024, 10:50:23
