Passage Time - The Way of the Eagle by D. E. Lamont

I recently reviewed The Way of the Eagle by D.E. Lamont and it was fantastic - I was so thoroughly touched by this book that I forgot to include my favorite passages from the book in my review. And, just to give this book and author some more accolades, I decided to create a separate post with my favorite passages from this novel...and if you have not checked it out, please do read my review and get your hands on this book! It is well worth it!

"I speak of honesty, never lying nor accusing someone of lying unjustly. I speak of meeting challenges or danger and not backing down. If you observe a thing, do not say you saw another thing. If you give your opinion, do not change it to suit what you think another wants to hear. If you say you will do something, then do it. If you say you will not, then do not."

"I have said it before: if you remain true to yourself, your family, your community and the Creator, you will retain your abilities, and your strength will only increase."

"It takes character to admit a misdeed."

"For now, remember and heed what you have just realized, for this is one of the most important things a man must know - to respect each person, to face your misdeeds honestly, and then to learn, so as not to repeat them."

"As you live, be what you are as faithfully as you possibly can - take upon yourself all the responsibility of your role willingly. But when it is time for that role to end - accept it with courage and respect for the Creator, and move on to the next."

Now you see why I think it should be recommended reading for high school students? Such good advice!
