„There were only four witches in all the Land of Oz, and two of them, those who live in the North and the South, are good witches.“

—  L. Frank Baum, book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900)
Context: There were only four witches in all the Land of Oz, and two of them, those who live in the North and the South, are good witches. I know this is true, for I am one of them myself, and cannot be mistaken. Those who dwelt in the East and the West were, indeed, wicked witches; but now that you have killed one of them, there is but one Wicked Witch in all the Land of Oz — the one who lives in the West.

„The Tin Woodman knew very well he had no heart, and therefore he took great care never to be cruel or unkind to anything.“

—  L. Frank Baum, book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900)
Context: The Tin Woodman knew very well he had no heart, and therefore he took great care never to be cruel or unkind to anything.
"You people with hearts," he said, "have something to guide you, and need never do wrong; but I have no heart, and so I must be very careful. When Oz gives me a heart of course I needn't mind so much."
