My favorite Crockett quotes tend to change daily and are rather dependent upon what I am doing. I’ve been writing essays lately and a line from Dark o’ the Moon keeps coming to mind. The setting is the Manse of Minnigaff, and we find Hugh Penpont “…the minister, toying with his quill and dotting the i’s of ‘Seventeenthly’ lightly and with a loving touch.” Perhaps not the grandest of place related quotes but it never fails to make me laugh.
Great example of the sometime subtlelty of Scots humour! And like you, my favourite quote changes regularly, Crockett is such a quotable writer, every story has many gems. Thanks for sharing your latest.
