A little note-- I'm wondering how many people are actually reading this blog. I can see the number of followers, and I can see my stats every day, but I would like to know how many people are really reading the posts. So if you could take a moment to leave a brief comment (even just a "hey there!") down below, I'd appreciate it. (And if you wouldn't mind mentioning how you found my blog in the first place, I'd love to hear that too.) De-lurk if you've been lurking! Be brave!
And now for the quotes...
Elizabeth Bennet: I wonder who first discovered the power of poetry in driving away love?
Mr. Darcy: I thought that poetry was the food of love.
Elizabeth Bennet: Of a fine stout love, it may be. But if it is only a vague inclination I'm convinced one poor sonnet will kill it stone dead.
~Pride and Prejudice (2005)
Hyacinth Gibson: I'm sure you will acknowledge that an engagement is an engagement.
Squire Hamley: Did I say an engagement was an elephant, ma'am?
~Wives and Daughters (1999)
There's something delicious about writing those first few words of a story. You can never quite tell where they will take you. Mine took me here, where I belong.
~Beatrix Potter, Miss Potter (2007)
I didn't write a mystery quote this week, and I don't think I will in the future. As Rachel D. pointed out last week, as soon as one person comments, everyone else has the answer right there in front of her and doesn't have an opportunity to guess for herself. I could remedy this by not publishing the comments, but I hate having unpublished comments in my Dashboard. Silly, I know, but then I am rather silly.
Also, I shall be announcing something that excites me greatly on Monday, so stay tuned for that...
