Never tell

Todays quotation is from Ran Away  by Barbara Hambly.

And we won´t speak of any of it at all, of course. The other thing he’d learned in the small gossipy world of that African village in Louisiana’s cane country was not to ever say anything that could get someone hurt, no matter how good a story it made.

You never knew who was listening. Or how trustworthy they were when they’d had a drink or two.

The better the story was, the likelier it was to be passed along.

From Ran Away  by Barbara Hambly.

In terror of flowers

Todays quotation is from Dead and Buried  by Barbara Hambly.

The young man stared at the old, eyes blazing, like a splendid high-couraged stallion – and about as intelligent as the average stallion, January reflected: a beautiful beast who would run himself to death in terror of flowers flickering in the wind, without asking why.

From Dead and Buried  by Barbara Hambly.

Pushing on

Today´s Quotation is from Barbara Hambly: The Time of the Dark.

And it isn´t so unusual,” Minalde went on, a glimmer of timid mischief in her blue eyes. “If you´ve noticed, it isn´t the women and children who sit down by the roadside and die. If a wagon breaks down, the man will moan and despair – the woman will start pushing. Watch sometime.”

From  The Time of The Dark by Barbara Hambly
