Addie's Quotes
"And when I knew that I had Cash, I knew that living was terrible and that this was the answer to it." (pg. 171, Chap. 40)

"But then I realized that I had been tricked by words older than Anse or love, and that the same words had tricked Anse too, and that my revenge would be that he would never know I was taking revenge." (pg. 172-173, Chap. 40)

Others' Quotes
" Not that Jewel, the one she labored so to bear and coddled and petted so and him flinging into tantrums or sulking spells, inventing devilment to devil her until I would have frailed him time and time." (pg. 21, Chap. 6) Cora.

" She lived, a lonely woman, lonely with her pride, trying to make folks believe different, hiding the fact that they just suffered her, because she was not cold in the coffin before they were carting her forty miles away to bury her, flouting the will of God to do it." (pg. 23, Chap. 6) Cora.


Addie
Whitfield's Quotes
"When they told me she was dying, all that night I wrestled with Satan, and I emerged victorious. I woke to the enormity of my sin; I saw the true light at last, and I fell on my knees and confessed to God and asked His guidance and received it." (pg. 177, Chap. 41)
"I have sinned, O Lord. Thou knowest the extent of my remorse and the will of my spirit. But He is merciful; He will accept the will for the deed, Who knew that when I framed the words of my confession it was to Anse I spoke them, even though he was not there." (pg. 179, Chap. 41)

Description
"Whitfield begins. His voice in bigger than him. It's like they are not the same. It's like he is one, and his voice is one, swimming on two horses side by side across the ford and coming into the house, the mud-splashed one and the one that never even got wet, triumphant and sad." (Vernon Tull, pg. 91, Chap. 20)
"Not even after Brother Whitfield, a godly man if ever one breathed God's breath, prayed for you and strove as never a man could except him..." (Cora Tull, pg. 167, Chap. 39)

Others' Quotes
“I reckon it does take a powerful trust in the Lord to guard a fellow, though sometimes I think that Cora’s a mite over-cautious, like she was trying to crowd the other folks away and get in closer than everybody else.” Vernon (page 71)

"I reckon if there's ere a man or woman anywhere that He could turn it all over to and go away with His mind at rest, it would be Cora." Vernon (page 73-4)

"If it had just been me when Cash fell off of that church and if it had just been me when pa laid sick with that load of wood fell on him, it would not be happening with every bastard in the county coming in to stare at her because if there is a God what the hell is He for. It would just be me and her on a high hill and me rolling the rocks down the hill faces and teeth and all by God until she was quiet and not that goddamn adze going One lick less. One lick less and we could be quiet." (pg. 15, Chap. 4)
