Instructions for Quotation Puzzle

  • Puzzle Goal

    The letters in each column of the quotation have been transposed and placed below the column. The Puzzle goal is to unscramble the columns to reconstruct the original quote.

    Punctuation has been removed from the quote.

    Word breaks occur only at the dark squares. The end of a row is not a word break; a word may wrap around the line.

    As you fill in the quote, the used letters grey out.

  • Mouse Control

    Click on a square in the grid to place the cursor on that letter of the quote.

    Click on one of the shuffled letters below the grid to place the cursor in the topmost free square in that column.

  • Keyboard Control

    • Arrows move the cursor up, down, left, or right.
    • Typing a letter causes it to appear at the selected location in the puzzle. The cursor will move to the next square. The letter will only be entered if it is one of the letters in the column
    • backspace clears the letter under the cursor, and moves the cursor to the left.
    • delete clears the letter under the cursor.
    • space clears the letter under the cursor and moves the cursor to the right.
    • ctrl-left and ctrl-right will move the cursor backward or forward one word at a time.
    • home and end will move the cursor to the beginning and end of the line, respectively.

    Note that after clicking one of the buttons below the puzzle (Save or Clear), you must click on a cell of the puzzle before using the keyboard controls.

    After clicking the link, you may click the same area again (the text has changed) to return to the puzzle solution.
