Monthly Prize Puzzle (August 2015)

A Puzzle by Radler

Each across clue has a misprint of one letter that must be corrected in order to solve it.
All the words with misprints are emboldened, and after correction will still be real words.
The corrected (i.e. new) letters, in clue order, form a 7-word quotation, but missing one of those words.

What is the missing word?  (The completed grid may provide further help.)

+ – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – +

Solvers should enter just the missing word, and nothing else, in the answer box below. There is no need to send a completed grid or solution. Closing date for entries is midnight on August 15th 2015. The winner will receive their choice of any of the Telegraph Crossword Books published by Hamlyn. All entries are confirmed by email. In the event of two or more entries being received from the same solver all of these entries will be disqualified, except that mistakes can be corrected by using the box below and clearly requesting that the earlier entry be withdrawn. The winner will be drawn at random from the correct entries. Editor’s decision is final.

Please note that, due to punitive postal charges, while the competition is open to all, the prize is only available to UK solvers.

Feedback on puzzles is welcomed and will be passed on to setters. A review will be published after the closing date.
