Thursday Quotables

Thursday Quotables
 is a weekly meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies. It’s the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week.

I have been reading the graphic novel Pride of Baghdad by Brian K. Vaughan and Niko Henrichon with my students during the past two weeks. It’s based on the true story of four lions that escaped the Baghdad Zoo during the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. I highly recommend it! The illustrations are top notch and while quite short, it offers an interesting perspective on freedom, war and the treatment of non-combatants.

“There’s an old saying, Zill. Freedom can’t be given, only earned.”
