Post subject:  Quote From A Book Game

post a quote from a book and see who can guess the book. we can't start a new quote until someone gets the previous quote right. when the quote is solved the original poster will acknowledge it. then the poster who got the quote right can post his or her quote.

the book must be a popular one. don't use quotes from books that the majority might not know.

ok, i'll go first...this is a tough one.

He had 5 months and didn't post. After that I'm sure it's a forfeit.

Awesome! Okay, another easy one. Went back to my High School days. One of the more "obscure" from the work, but still memorable.

I got this one D.K. though I was momentarily tripped up. At first look, it had me reaching for Sagan; however scholastics caught up with me.

I'm going to hold it for a while; just to give others the opportunity, lest this become a two player game.

Good one though!
