Forgotten Lore: Introduction

Forgotten Lore 

(A Quaint and Curious Volume)

I am beginning a new blog series...for those of you that love literature and the written word! I hope to occasionally entice you into an addicting, brief moment of bibliophilic delectation! 

Here are the uncomplicated rules: 

  • I will provide a line or two from a book (perhaps from famous or popular authors, and maybe sometimes from lesser known folks who penned a good line). 
  • YOU take a guess at the author and the book. 
  • And, if you'd like, provide a line from your own favorite novel/author.  


Today's quote:

"Words — so innocent and powerless as they
are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent 
for good and evil they become in the hands 
of one who knows how to combine them."


  1. well, it's sure a good one, but i don't recognize it. Looking forward to this series!

  2. And the answer is: Nathaniel Hawthorne, "The American Notebooks," ~1848


Thank-you for taking the time to comment!
