  • "'Moneylender,' Bates said frankly. 'I gamble, d'ye see. That's what's brought me to this pass; need of money.

Though if so, I suppose she'll be in hell, too, won't she? Serve her right, the prating old bizzom.'"

    —Diana Gabaldon, Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade (New York: Delacorte Press, 2007), 187
