Drop Quote

This is another of those puzzles that the choice of starters will make or break. The idea is very simple; a quotation is dismantled, and the solver must rearrange the words to recreate what was said. In order to make the task reasonable, the solver's options are reduced by setting the words of the quotation in columns, and only jumbling words within their column.

Some correctly placed words are needed to give enough information to start solving, but giving too many words will, of course, take all the fun out of the puzzle. The choice of quotation is also important. Dull quotes are a poor reward for the effort, while ungrammatical quotes are very hard to reconstruct.


Work out the correct place for each listed word in its column above to reveal a quotation.
