Quotes

Niskavuoren vanha emäntä (old matron): Even the milkmaids would help on the fields in between milkings. Now they just nap as much as they can.
Loviisa's guest: Yes, because they've been with boys all night!
Rovasti (dean): That's what the world has come down to. It's rare to meet a chaste maid in the cowshed, anymore.
[Said by the village religious authority figure!]
