I know we all have one; a favorite quote. We use them all the time. You say them to cheer people up when they are sad. Maybe you have a quote hanging on a mirror to read and use it to make yourself stronger when trying get through tough times. Quotes have even been used to bring a nation together. We can't forget, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." John F. Kennedy
Quotes have been used for centuries. Sometimes people are asked to make a quote and sometimes a quote is made accidentally. One quote that I use all of the time was made by Dr. Seuss and it says, "Those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." Whenever I sign a wedding card, I always write off to the side, "May you always have what you want and may you always want what you have." I got that one from my Aunt; not sure where she heard it.
What I want from you is to post your favorite quote here. I will randomly choose a winner from all of the quotes to win an autographed copy of Veronica Wolff's new release Devil's Highlander, A Clan MacAlpin Saga.
"They share a haunting past... and an unspoken passion."
After Scotland's Civil Wars, the orphaned brothers and sisters of the MacAlpin clan reclaimed the abandoned Dunnottar Castle as their birthright. Hardened in battle and haunted by family secrets, these fiery Highlanders must rely on each other as they right the wrongs of their troubled history.
"Before she can give herself to him, he must forgive himself."
Cormac MacAlpin lost his innocence too young- he's always blamed himself for the kidnapping of his twin brother, Aidan. He turned away from his childhood friend, Marjorie Keith, denying the prospect of happiness with the young woman who loved him.
Now a tormented war hero working as a fisherman, Cormac is speechless when Marjorie comes to him with an appeal for help.... a poor city boy she has been caring for has disappeared, reminding her of long lost Aidan. Their bond of shame once thwarted a budding romance, and threatens to again- but Cormac and Marjorie are adults now, with needs to powerful to keep locked away....
