No, these aren't those annoying problems that math teachers like to give in middle school. These puzzles are based around words and language use.
A quotation is to be filled in in the grid below. Black squares represent spaces between words and possibly punctuation. The word or phrase preceding the colon (:) merely identifies the topic. The words after the colon are the quote itself, or a definition, according to the author, of the topic subject.

Yellow squares are to take one of the letters from the yellow squares at the top in the same column. White squares are to take one of the letters from the white squares to the left in the same row. Each shown letter is used exactly once. Only black squares can separate words, not line breaks, and remember that black squares can possibly represent punctuation, such as an apostrophe.

When completed, you'll have the full quotation.
