A while back, estellacat
suggested that we have a monthly quote challenge, either posting one and having people guess the author, or posting several and having people match them up. So...that's what we're going to do!
The first challenge, tying into our monthly discussion point, involves quotes by members of the Committee of Public Safety. You will notice that there are only nine quotes, meaning that there are three members whose names you will not use. But telling you who they are would be far too easy, so you'll just have to discern for yourself!
You will have until March 27th to respond to this post with your guesses. Comments will be screened until that time. The winner will be the first to get the greatest number of answers correct and will also
be in charge of the quote challenge for next month (and I'll run the monthly discussion point by that person first just to be sure they don't have any concerns about the feasibility of finding quotes related to it).The only real rule, and this is a BIG rule, is no Googling
. Googling would...well, it would make the whole thing fairly pointless. You are, however, able to scour any printed sources at your disposal for the quotes, as it involves a much larger amount of blood, sweat, and tears than just copying and pasting every quote into Google. :P( So without further ado...the quotes! )
