Famous quotes containing the words spoke and/or people:

    “You’ll have me over the cliff,” he exclaimed hardly ever yet putting out his strength against her.
    “And so I will, by the help of God. Now think of her! Now think of her!” And as she spoke she pressed him backwards towards his fall.
    Anthony Trollope (1815–1882)

    ... some of my people could have been left [in Africa] and are living there. And I can’t understand them and they don’t know me and I don’t know them because all we had was taken away from us. And I became kind of angry; I felt the anger of why this had to happen to us. We were so stripped and robbed of our background, we wind up with nothing.
    Fannie Lou Hamer (1917–1977)
