??? {Mystery Quote #6} ???

New header.  Do you guys feel like I change that too much?  And can you believe we’ve done SIX “Mystery Quote”‘s already?  I can’t.  I wonder how many we’ll get to before I finish The Sacrifice.  .  .


Last week’s quote was from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.  The ‘she’ is Jo, and the ‘he’ was a replacement for ‘the literal Demi’.

I really wanted to keep the ‘literal’ part in, but I don’t think ‘the literal [he]’ is good grammar, even with the he in brackets. 🙂  Anyways, Ellen got the title and the names right.  Brownie points for being the only one. 🙂

I decided to do two quotes this time:

“Jeff done tole me,” said [she].  Although she was only seven, she was not afraid of her father.  “They been here most a month already.  They come in a big wagon.  They moved in while you was away, Pa.  We watched ’em unload.”


“She don’t like cowmen,” said [she].  “They brag too much.  And neither do I.”

Happy guessing!

Hint: The she's are two different people. I decided 'Jeff' was a common enough name to leave. (Also, let's go ahead and make a rule that you can always guess what's in the brackets. Sound good?)

Do you like my little ‘hint’ box?  I’ve known how make boxes that for a while, but I never found a good time to use it.  It’s kinda’ fun! 🙂

Happy Tuesday!

  1. Happy Tuesday to you to, Hanna! 😀
    Hmm… Maybe the quote is from’ little house on the prairie.’
    I’m probably TOTALLY wrong though.
    Oh well. * Sigh*.
    Nice box! I think the two girls ( If it was from little house on the prairie) Might be Laura and Mary…. But maybe it was two other girls….. or women. – Jaidyn ( Yeah. it’s not little house on the prairie is it?) Oh well. * Sigh* again………

  2. I had to read it three times before I had a guess, but thenI knew the book and I only had to look up who said what. Does that count?
    It’s from Strawberry Girl by Lois Lenski. The first she is Essie and the second she is Birdie.
    I should read that book again……

    1. If you had a guess about who it was and just confirmed it by looking at the book, it still counts. 🙂
      I wonder if it will turn this yellow: =)

  3. My Mom came across your blog and recommended it to me, and I absolutely love it! Thank you for writing! Your stories are amazing, and I can relate to you in a lot of different ways.
    I haven’t read Strawberry Girl yet. I definitely need to put that on my read list, along with Counted Worthy.

    1. Thanks for commenting, Micaiah! I’m glad you’re enjoying my blog!
      You should TOTALLY read both of those, they’re awesome! 🙂

  4. I’m not sure what book it’s from! Even if I don’t know the answers to very many of your mystery quotes, I really like when you post them! It’s so fun to try and figure them out … even if I end up needing to Google them to find out what it is 🙂 ~Savannah

  5. Definitely Strawberry Girl! At least… I I’m pretty sure it is. Maybe I should take that ‘definitely’ part out. Oh, well. 🙂
