Famous quotes containing the word people:

    Civilization is maintained by a very few people in a small number of places and we need only some bombs and a few prisons to blot it out altogether.
    Cyril Connolly (1903–1974)

    The deer and the dachshund are one.
    Well, the gods grow out of the weather.
    The people grow out of the weather;
    The gods grow out of the people.
    Encore, encore, encore les dieux . . .
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    And we may be led, then, upward through more
    Powerful forms of poetry, past columns
    With peeling posters on them, to the country of indifference.
    Meanwhile if the swell diapasons, blooms
    Unhappily and too soon, the little people are nonetheless real.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
