When Dorothy, who was an orphan, first came to her, Aunt Em had been so startled by the childs laughter that she would scream and press her hand upon her heart whenever Dorothys merry voice reached her ears; and she still looked at the little girl with wonder that she could find anything to laugh at.
...Dorothy did not know what to say to this, for all the people seemed to think her a witch, and she knew very well she was only an ordinary little girl who had come by the chance of a cyclone into a strange land.
...I felt sad at this, for it showed I was not such a good Scarecrow after all; but the old crow comforted me, saying, 'If you only had brains in your head you would be as good a man as any of them, and a better man than some of them.
...Dorothy did not say anything, for she was puzzled to know which of her two friends was right, and she decided if she could only get back to Kansas and Aunt Em, it did not matter so much whether the Woodman had no brains and the Scarecrow no heart, or each got what he wanted.
...Nothing that I know of, answered the Woodman; but the Scarecrow, who had been trying to think, but could not because his head was stuffed with straw, said, quickly, Oh, yes; you can save our friend, the Cowardly Lion, who is asleep in the poppy bed.
