Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Well, my mother told me I’d be some lassie’s choice one fine day.” He reached down a hand and helped me up. “I told her,” he continued, “that I thought it was the man’s part to choose.” “And what did she say to that?” I asked. “She rolled her eyes and said ‘You’ll find out, my fine wee cockerel, you’ll find out.’ ” He laughed. “And so I have.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Don’t be afraid,” he whispered into my hair. “There’s the two of us now.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “As yet too hungry and too clumsy for tenderness, still he made love with a sort of unflagging joy that made me think that male virginity might be a highly underrated commodity.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “A sadist with a sense of humor was particularly dangerous.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “There’s a little trick called the Rule of Three: if you use any three of the five senses, it will make the scene immediately three-dimensional.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “In bed,” she said calmly. “I want you to come to bed with me.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “I’ve yet to see the auld woman believes in witches, nor the young one, neither. It’s men think there must be ill-wishes and magic in women, when it’s only the natural way of the creatures.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Often the best tool is the most dangerous. One doesn’t hesitate to use it on that account; one merely makes sure to take adequate precautions.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Damn you, Sassenach!” his voice said, from a very great distance. His voice was choked with passion. “Dam you! I swear if ye die on me, I’ll kill you!”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “I’ve heard it said that a man’s reach must exceed his grasp – or what’s a heaven for?”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Not the historians. No, not them. Their greatest crime is that they presume to know what happened, how things come about, when they have only what the past chose to leave behind – for the most part, they think what they were meant to think, and it’s a rare one that sees what really happened, behind the smokescreen of artifacts and paper.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Superstition and sensation are always so much more appealing than truth and rationality. The.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Sassenach, I’ve been stabbed, bitten, slapped, and whipped since supper – which I didna get to finish. I dinna like to scare children an I dinna like to flog men, and I’ve had to do both. I’ve two hundred English camped three miles away, and no idea what to do about them. I’m tired, I’m hungry, and I’m sore. If you’ve anything like womanly sympathy about ye, I could use a bit!”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “It was Jamie’s fear that he would lose her – that she would go, swing out into a dark and solitary space without him, unless he could somehow bind her to him, keep her with him. But, Christ, what a risk to take – with a woman so shocked and brutalized, how could he risk it?”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Then I laid my head upon his chest and gave my dreams up to his keeping.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “My father liked me, when I wasna being an idiot. And he loved me, too – enough to beat the daylights out of me when I was being an idiot. Jamie Fraser.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “It’s only when ye ken ye can say no that it takes courage.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Torn between the impulse to stroke his head, and the urge to cave it in with a rock, I did neither.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “It’s the anonymity of the war that makes the killing possible. When the nameless dead are named again on tombstone and on cenotaph, then they regain the identity they lost as soldiers, and take their place in grief and memory, the ghosts of sons and lovers.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “There were a few faint echoes from the common room two floors below, and a brief flurry of noise and movement, but this served only to emphasize my own isolation.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Have you anything to say to me now, Madam?” he demanded. “Your wig is crooked,” I said, and closed my eyes again.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “I found the rooted silence, rushing stream, and rustling leaves balm to the spirit.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Only a raid, Sassenach. I’ve been doin’ that since I was fourteen. It’s only in fun, ye see; it’s different when you’re up against someone who really means to kill ye.” “Fun,” I said, a little faintly. “Yes, quite.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Does it ever stop, Claire? The wanting?”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Claire knew the flavor of solitude. It was cold as spring water, and not all could drink it; for some it was not refreshment, but mortal chill.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “What is it about ye, Sassenach, I wonder?” he said conversationally, eyes still fixed on Myers. “What is what about me?” He turned then, and gave me a narrow eye. “What it is that makes every man ye meet want to take off his breeks within five minutes of meetin’ ye.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “It’s what happens when you live through things you shouldn’t have been able to live through and can’t reconcile that knowledge with the fact that you did.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “All loss is one, and one loss becomes all, a single death the key to the gate that bars memory.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “He was overcome with a sudden sense of premonition, though he did not believe in premonition. He felt things in motion around him, things that he did not understand and could not control, things settling of themselves into an ordained and appointed position, like the revolving spheres of his father’s orrery – and he wished to protest this state of affairs, but could not.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “I always thought it would be a simple matter to lie wi’ a woman, he said softly. And yet... I want to fall on my face at your feet and worship you”-he dropped the towel and reached out, taking me by the shoulders-“and still I want to force ye to your knees before me, and hold ye there wi’ me hands tangled in your hair, and your mouth at my service... and I want both things at the same time, Sassenach.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Blood of my Blood,” he whispered, “and bone of my bone. You carry me within ye, Claire, and ye canna leave me now, no matter what happens, You are mine, always, if ye will it or no, if ye want me or nay. Mine, and I wilna let ye go.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “I want to hold you like a kitten in my shirt, and still I want to spread your thighs and plow ye like a rotting bull. I dinna understand myself.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “There is an oath upon her,” he said to Arch, and I realized dimly that he was still speaking in Gaelic, though I understood him clearly. “She may not kill, save it is for mercy or her life. It is myself who kills for her.” “And I,” said a tall figure behind him, softly. Ian. Arch.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “It may,” the deeper voice agreed. “It may rain straight up tomorrow instead of down, as well. That doesna mean I’ll stand waiting at the stairhead wi’ my wee bucket turned upside down.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Hal swore in German behind him. He must have reached the part about the rifles; German oaths were reserved for the most stringent occasions, French being used for minor things like a burnt dinner, and Latin for formal insults committed to paper. Minnie wouldn’t let either Hal or John swear in English in the house, not wanting the boys to acquire low habits. John could have told her it was too late for such caution but didn’t.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Scots have long memories, and they’re not the most forgiving of people.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Claire. The name knifed across his heart with a pain that was more racking than anything his body had ever been called on to withstand.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “I am what God has made me, and must deal with the Times in which He has placed me.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Aye, lass, courage like that is uncommon rare. It wasna ignorance, mind; he’d just seen two men flogged and he knew the same was coming to him. It’s just he had made up his mind there was no help for it. Boldness in battle is nothing out of the way for a Scotsman, ye ken, but to face down fear in cold blood is rare in any man.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “And it was, as Dougal explained, convenient to the pillory, a homely wooden contraption that stood on a small stone plinth in the center of the square, adjacent to the wooden stake used – with thrifty economy of purpose – as whipping post, maypole, flagstaff and horse tether, depending upon requirements.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “A mark on one arm like the one I bore. Here, in this time, the mark of sorcery, the mark of a magus. The small, homely scar of a smallpox vaccination.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Pointless to spend too much time in planning, anyway, given the propensity of life to make sudden left-hand turns without warning.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “We had chosen the Highlands as a place to holiday before Frank took up his appointment as a history professor at Oxford, on the grounds that Scotland had been somewhat less touched by the physical horrors of war than the rest of Britain, and was less susceptible to the frenetic postwar gaiety that infected more popular vacation spots.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Probably from Norse roots. There’s a lot of the Norse influence round here, and all the way up the coast to the West. Some of the place names are Norse, you know, not Gaelic at all.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “Alive and one. We are one, and while we love, death will never touch us.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “He was not afraid to die with her, by fire or any other way – only to live without her.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “And his release began, deep inside me, without his moving, shivering through his body so that his arms trembled, the ruddy hairs quivering in the dim light, and he dropped his head with a sound like a sob, his hair hiding his face as he spilled himself, each jerk and pulse of his flesh between my legs rousing an echo in my own.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “And then later, at the funeral, members of the family, followed by the tenants and then the servants, had come one by one to add a stone each to the weight of remembrance.”
Diana Gabaldon Quote: “She sounded as though love were an unfortunate but unavoidable condition.”
