Quotation Puzzle 80

In this puzzle you are to fit the letters in each column into the
boxes directly above them, to form words. Once a letter is used,
cross it off the bottom of the diagram and do not use it again. A
black square indicates the end of a word. When the diagram is
filled in, you will be able to read a completed quotation 
across the boxes.
