Goblin Market Sin Quotes
How we cite our quotes: (line)
"Dear, you should not stay so late,
Twilight is not good for maidens;" (143-144)
Lizzie tries to remind Laura why they shouldn't stay out late – the goblins will tempt them. Specifically, though, staying out late isn't good for girls. Apparently eating the goblin fruit is only dangerous for "maidens."
