Booking Through Thursday

The question of the week is:
Do you have a favorite quote from a book?
And my answer is: yes. So, so, so many.

I recently shared 10 Favorite Book Quotes from novels. And you can always find more by pushing the "Quotables" label under this post.

Today I'm going to share the most recent quote written in my Commonplace book*:
Honest intention will not cure faulty practice.
That's a quote from this book:

John Buchan wrote the Richard Hannay spy novels but Witch Wood is not one of them. This is a book about religious civil war in Scotland. Think that sounds dull? It isn't. And if you're willing to wade through some fairly thick Scots dialect, I'd highly recommend this book to you.

*Never heard of a commonplace book? Here's a post that explains what mine is.

Excellent choice for a quote, and so true! I've never read anything by Buchan except The 39 Steps, but this sounds interesting.
