Little Eli Wakefield:
But won't you tell me something more about Texas?



Elias Wakefield:

Elias Wakefield:
It ain't we don't like people - we like room more. Room to stretch in, room to see and hunt... and where you set your foot no foot's been set before. That's what ails Kentucky now; a man can't hardly move without he nudges up agin' a neighbor.

Elias Wakefield:
I'm trying to be a right father to you. I'm trying to think what kind of man you'll grow up to be.



Little Eli Wakefield:
What kind of man are you coming to be? That's the worst of all!

Zack Wakefield:
I know what's best for him. I'll make a businessman out of him. You leave it to me. I'll work the buckskin out of him and off of him both. He's my little brother.

Pleasant Tuesday Babson:
You don't measure land in Texas by rod and chain - you measure by the eye. And when the eye can see no further, that's where you drive your stake. The rifle ball has not been made that can carry to a neighbor's line.
