Famous quotes containing the words killed and/or people:

    In the U.S. for instance, the value of a homemaker’s productive work has been imputed mostly when she was maimed or killed and insurance companies and/or the courts had to calculate the amount to pay her family in damages. Even at that, the rates were mostly pink collar and the big number was attributed to the husband’s pain and suffering.

    When people are free to do as they please, they usually imitate each other.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)
