Quote Collection: July

Last month, I did a quotation collection/round-up from some books I'd been reading in June (find it here!), and tonight I've got a short literary list I thought I'd share from July.  Don't forget to share your favorite books/quotes from the month in the comments!

"The course of English Literature would have been decidedly different had Mr. Wordsworth owned a power mower, she thought."

"Well, as a general rule, most women, before they've got 'em, present to their men smiling, agreeing faces.  They hide their thoughts.  You now, when you're feeling hateful, honey, you are hateful."

Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee

(I was excited about this big new release last month but also uncertain about reading it after all the news coverage - I did really enjoy it though!)

"They're real strong magic, they make you have good luck.  Not like fried chicken when you're not lookin' for it, but things like long life 'n' good health 'n' passin' six-weeks tests."

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

(After Go Set A Watchman, you of course have to go back and marvel again how amazing To Kill A Mockingbird is :) )

"Nearly a month then to this visit about which my feelings were so uncertain.  All of a sudden, not only not nearly a month but now, today, now this minute, and I found myself being whirled through the suburbs of Oxford in a large black Daimler."

Love in a Cold Climate by Nancy Mitford

(Love this description - this is exactly how time seems to move sometimes, with leap)
