The quote I love the most, is the one from Jo (Joanne Bradmore) played by an astonishing Janet Jackson.
Save your "sorry.
" One thing I don't need are anymore apologies.I got sorry greeting me at the front door.You can keep yours.I don't know what to do with them...I can't even...I have to throw some away.I can't even get to the clothes in my closet for all the sorries. I'm not even sorry about you being sorry.
Here is an extract from: for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf, the original play from which the movie was adapted,
“one thing I don’t need
