Famous quotes containing the word people:
“When people are free to do as they please, they usually imitate each other.”
—Eric Hoffer (19021983)
“To write weekly, to write daily, to write shortly, to write for busy people catching trains in the morning or for tired people coming home in the evening, is a heartbreaking task for men who know good writing from bad. They do it, but instinctively draw out of harms way anything precious that might be damaged by contact with the public, or anything sharp that might irritate its skin.”
—Virginia Woolf (18821941)
“The little dog lay curled and did not rise
But slept the deeper as the ashes rose
And found the people incomplete,”
—Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)
