"I'm sure he isn't tampering with the vision!"

It's actually from this one of mine. I was laying across the bed and a paperback copy was sitting in a cardboard box covered with owl images beside me.

" 'But,' says I, 'my case will be doubly hard; for as they carry it ill to me now, because he desires to have me, they'll carry it worse when they shall find I have denied him; and they will presently say, there's something else in it, and then out it comes that I am married already to somebody else, or that I would never refuse a match so much above me as this one was.'

"Zakath stood atop the knoll, holding his sword" if I don't count the first partial sentence. If I do, it's:

"Garion moved quickly, his feet avoiding almost on their own the windrows of years-old dead leaves and the fallen twigs and branches which littered the floor of this ancient forest."
