Famous quotes containing the words people and/or notable:

    Some people ... can’t see the country for the money in their pockets. They think their state is the country, or the way they live is the country. And they’re willing to split the country because of it.
    Dan Totheroh (1895–1976)

    Every notable advance in technique or organization has to be paid for, and in most cases the debit is more or less equivalent to the credit. Except of course when it’s more than equivalent, as it has been with universal education, for example, or wireless, or these damned aeroplanes. In which case, of course, your progress is a step backwards and downwards.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
