Mattie Ross quotes

I won't rest until Tom Chaney is barking in Hell.

If I smelled as bad as you I wouldn't live near people.

If in four months I could not find Tom Chaney, with a mark on his face like banished Cain, I would not advise others how to do so.

I also notice that the men of Texas gouge their mounts with great brutal spurs — and cultivate their hair like lettuce!

I want Tom Chaney hanged for killing my father! It's little to me how many dogs and senators he's killed in Texas.

Those horses can't outrun Little Blackie! They're loaded down with fat men and iron!

I'm going! And it's not because you say I can't, and it's not because you say I can. I paid good cash money to be here, and I'm on my own business! Now, we'll have no more talk about it.

My name is Mattie Ross, of Near Dardanelle in Yell County. My family owns property, and I don't know why I'm being treated like this!

Rooster Cogburn is no good friend of mine! He led us straight into your hands, and now he has left me with a gang of cut-throats! Is that what they call "grit" in Fort Smith? We call it something else in Yell County.

Papa's marker is not what was ordered. I will make that wool-headed fool of a stone man change it.
