Quotes from Viola Davis's Characters

    2. Aibileen Clark: I know somethin' about you. Don't you forget that. From what Yule Mae says, there's a lot of time to write letters in jail. Plenty of time to write the truth about you. And the paper is free.
    3. Hilly Holbrook: Nobody will believe what you wrote!
    4. Aibileen Clark: I don't know. I've been told that I'm a pretty good writer, already sold a lot of books!
