Famous quotes containing the word fighting:

    I’m not fighting any causes. I’m black, everybody can see that, but I am a storyteller for the masses.
    Jackie Torrence (b. 1944)

    Our frigate takes fire,
    The other asks if we demand quarter?
    If our colors are struck and the fighting done?
    Now I laugh content for I hear the voice of my little captain,
    We have not struck, he composedly cries, we have just begun our part of the fighting.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    Land is the only thing in the world that amounts to anything, for ‘tis the only thing in this world that lasts.... ‘Tis the only thing worth working for, worth fighting for—worth dying for.
    Margaret Mitchell (1900–1949)
