Starting two years ago, I've vowed to read a classic every summer, and the recent adaptations on PBS made me select those two. If I can get in a re-read of Wuthering Heights, that'd be great, too. It's my favorite, and it's been way too long!(less)

“History does not keep all lessons.”
C.K. Beggan, A Shadow in Sundown

“But when do I ever listen to anybody? Nothing is going to get in my way; my life was always going to be short. Not even the murky water that’s lapping up my nose and into my eyes is going to stop me. Not even the shadows. I’m going home.”
C.K. Beggan, A Shadow in Sundown

“But what is history if not tales of our mistakes? And what is the present but a sum of them?”
C.K. Beggan, A Shadow in Sundown

“Atticus said to Jem one day, "I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the backyard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird." That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. "Your father’s right," she said. "Mockingbirds don’t do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corn cribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
