Try to capture 2 quotes each day from watching the movie. If not the exact words, try to capture the theme of the quote and the person who said it.

Examples :

"I've warned you!" S. Af mine manager in reference to the protest march. "We've warned each other." Said Gandhi, refusing to be intimidated.

"One king; one law!" Protest chant by protesters. It was a plea for fairness.

" What do we think when men defy and unjust law?" Minister Charlie Andrews, in a sermon in S Af. Reminded me of American history and the Civil Rights movement.

"We are trying to make a nation, but the British keep trying to divide us." Mr Gokhle, at the Home Rule gathering.
