Quote Game- Veterans and War


Welcome to this week's Quote Game! The topic for this week is Quotes on Veterans and War , in honor of Memorial Day in the States. Please leave a comment with your quote(s) and the book they came from for all to enjoy. Also, if you don't have a quote (or even if you do) give some love by telling others which quotes you enjoyed reading!

Here is the quote that I left with you last week to start you off:

"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." -from Mark Twain's Notebook

Next week's topic to look for in your reading is Quotes on Money. Here is a quote to get you started for next week:

"Darkness is cheap, and Scrooge liked it." -from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Look for quotes on money in your books this week and remember to come by next Tuesday to share them with us!

    "It was the women’s tribute to the war. It taxes both alike, and takes the blood of the men, and the tears of the women." -from Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray
