I have just finished Anna Sewell’s Black Beauty today, and would like to share some quotes that touched me quite deeply. All of these quotes are from Jerry Barker, a kind hearted man who became one of Black Beauty’s favorite masters.
“Do your best,
And leave the rest,
Twill all come right
Some day or night”
“’Do you know why this world is as bad as it is?’
‘No,’ said the other.
‘Then I’ll tell you. It is because people think only about their own business, and won’t trouble themselves to stand up for the oppressed, nor bring the wrong-doer to light.”
“My doctrine is this, that if we see cruelty or wrong that we have the power to stop, and yet do nothing, we make ourselves shares in the guilty.”
Do you have favorite quotes from books you read? Let's share in Listra's weekly meme!
The idea is to pick a quote from a book or author you read, like, or hate, and write your comment about it. You can post the “Weekend Quote” article every weekend (Saturday or Sunday), or at any weekend suits you best.
Here are the rules:
- You have to pick one quote and comment about it. It may be the reason why you agree or don't agree with it, or why it is interesting for you. I can also be your experience that reminds you of that quote. Feel free to use your imagination. :D
- Please put the picture of “Weekend Quote” on either your blog sidebar or everytime you post the quote. (It helps people to know what we are doing).
- Please give a link back to Listra’s blog at your post.
