With the people, for the people, by the people. I crack up when I hear it; I say, with the handful, for the handful, by the handful, 'cause that's what really happens.
As quoted in This Little Light of Mine, ch. 8, by Hay Mills (1993).
It's time for America to get right.Fannie Lou Hamer
I always said if I lived to get grown and had a chance, I was going to try to get something for my mother and I was going to do something for the black man of the South if it would cost my life; I was determined to see that things were changed.Fannie Lou Hamer
