Thursday Quotables: Dragonfly in Amber


Welcome back to Thursday Quotables! This weekly feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week.  Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written, Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines of the week will be, and you’re invited to join in!

DIA quote

Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon
(first published 1992)

I’m just finishing a re-read of Dragonfly in Amber (book #2 in the Outlander series) via audiobook, and so many new and different parts jumped out at me this time. I don’t think I ever really paid attention to the quote above in my previous readings, but this time, it struck me as so simple and romantic… that I got inspired, played around with images and text, and made myself a pretty graphic of it! What do you think?

What lines made you laugh, cry, or gasp this week? Do tell!

If you’d like to participate in Thursday Quotables, it’s really simple:

  • Write a Thursday Quotables post on your blog. Try to pick something from whatever you’re reading now. And please be sure to include a link back to Bookshelf Fantasies in your post (, if you’d be so kind!
  • Leave your link in the comments — or, if you have a quote to share but not a blog post, you can leave your quote in the comments too!
  • Visit other linked blogs to view their Thursday Quotables, and have fun!
