This last day of the challenge, day three, I chose three quotes from Umberto Eco’s “Name of the Rose”.
I prepared this post February 19, 2016 in the morning, without knowing that the writer of these quotes and this fantastic book would pass away Friday Night in Milan.
R. I. P. Umberto Eco! You will be missed by many authors whose inspiring example you were!
Each of this quotes came from the lips of one of the main characters, Franciscan Friar, William of Baskerville. A monk, a teacher, a former inquisitor, an investigator – and foremost, a book lover.
How much I admire him and his wisdom. But read for yourself:
“Show not what has been done, but what can be. How beautiful the world would be if there were a procedure for moving through labyrinths.”
“Nothing gives a fearful man more courage than another’s fear.”
“How peaceful life would be without Love, Adson. How Safe. How Tranquil. And how Dull.”
I was told I will have to continue the challenge by nominating three writers/bloggers who will be willing to post their own quotes.
My three nominees are:
Jen Owenby: https://jenowenby.wordpress.com/
Bette A. Stevens: http://4writersandreaders.com/
Jennifer Hinsman: https://hinsmanj.wordpress.com/
I’m sure we’re going to get the most amazing book quotes from you!! I can’t wait to read them. Good Luck and have fun!
