The Color Purple

"All my life I had to fight. I had to fight my daddy. I had to fight my uncles. I had to fight my brothers. A girl child ain't safe in a family of men, but I ain't never thought I'd have to fight in my own house!" -Sofia (Oprah Winfrey)

"Sat in that jail, I sat in that jail til I near about done rot to death. I know what it like to wanna go somewhere and cain't. I know what it like to wanna sing... and have it beat out 'ya. I want to thank you, Miss Celie, fo everything you done for me. I 'members that day in the store with Miss Millie - I's feelin' real down. I's feelin' mighty bad. And when I seed you - I know'd there is a God. I know'd there is a God." -Sofia (Oprah Winfrey)

"[referring to Shug] She black as tar, nappy-headed, got legs like baseball bats, and I hear she got that nasty women's disease." -Old Mr. Johnson (Adolph Caesar)

"Nothing but death can keep me from it!" -Nettie (Akosua Busia)

"See Daddy, sinners have souls too." -Shug (Margaret Avery)
