Man gets used to everything, the scoundrel! Life is a mess and a miracle. So pick up a broom and dance. On the day the world ended, the fate of humanity rested in a small metal box. (From the movie version of a book series) Even the quotes here that I don’t recognize are fun as good quotes, lol! "...by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there." August 30, 2019 at 10:07 pm #95925 E. Grace @emgc Ooh this looks fun. @jennythefaun I think your first one is from Crime and Punishment? Okay I’ve got a couple… “I want to do something splendid…something heroic or wonderful that won’t be forgotten after I’m dead. I don’t know what, but I’m on the watch for it and mean to astonish you all someday.” and “And please don’t call me that.” “I didn’t call you ‘that’, I called you George Washington.” "True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less." - C. S. Lewis September 2, 2019 at 9:56 am #96081 Kayla Skywriter @kayla-skywriter @jennythefaun Yes, it is. How we chose to fight is just as important as what we fight for September 2, 2019 at 1:29 pm #96100 JennytheFaun @jennythefaun @emgc Precisely so! Is your first one by Louisa May Alcott? I want to say it’s from Little Women but it could be from something else she wrote too… "...by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there." September 2, 2019 at 1:42 pm #96102 Quinn O’Fallon @quinn-ofallon @jennythefaun The last one is City of Ember, right? I liked that movie. 🙂 September 2, 2019 at 3:51 pm #96125 Zachary Holbrook @toklaham-veruzia @jennythefaun The second one is from The Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic @emgc And your second is from The Mysterious Benedict Society (The first book in that series is the best) おはいよう. 日本語は好きです . September 2, 2019 at 4:03 pm #96129 JennytheFaun @jennythefaun @quinn-ofallon @toklaham-veruzia Indeed! (I like the City of Ember movie too. It’s one of the few book-to-movie adaptations I heartily approve of.) "...by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there." September 3, 2019 at 9:59 am #96166 Kayla Skywriter @kayla-skywriter Oh, it was the Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic. Shoot, I read that book. How we chose to fight is just as important as what we fight for September 3, 2019 at 2:38 pm #96185 E. Grace @emgc @jennythefaun Yep! It is Little Women. (By far my favorite work of hers. 🙂 ) @toklaham-veruzia Yep, it’s my favorite as well! (I had a really hard time deciding what quote to use… there’s far too many good ones…) "True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less." - C. S. Lewis September 13, 2019 at 1:33 pm #97013 Zachary Holbrook @toklaham-veruzia Two more: (both from the same series) “I will never forgive that suit of armor!” “To change the world, you must first change yourself.” おはいよう. 日本語は好きです .
