New thoughts

Today´s Quotation is from Josephine Tey´s book : Brat Farrar:

“Mr. Macallan grinned. “I’ll allow you that.” But he went on glowering down at the bright harbour scene. “I look at them and think: ‘These people kept Scotland fighting for four hundred years, ‘ and I can’t find the answer.”

“The answer, of course, is that they didn’t.”

“Let me tell you that my country – ”

“They’ve been much too busy for the last thousand years keeping the shores of England. But for them your Scotland would be part of Spain today.”

This was apparently a new idea to Mr. Macallan. He decided to let it ride.”
