Famous quotes containing the word people:

    Three people marooned on a desert island would soon reinvent politics.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    It is indeed typical that you Earth people refuse to believe in the superiority of any world but your own. Children looking into a magnifying glass, imagining the image you see is the image of your true size.
    —Franklin Coen. Joseph Newman. The Monitor (Douglas Spencer)

    Knowledge is indivisible. When people grow wise in one direction, they are sure to make it easier for themselves to grow wise in other directions as well. On the other hand, when they split up knowledge, concentrate on their own field, and scorn and ignore other fields, they grow less wise—even in their own field.
    Isaac Asimov (1920–1992)
