Famous quotes containing the word people:

    Old people working. Making a gift of garden.
    Or washing a car, so some one else may ride.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    When a man gets up to speak, people listen, then look. When a woman gets up, people look; then, if they like what they see, they listen.
    Pauline Frederick (1883–1938)

    At no time in history ... have the people who are not fit for society had such a glorious opportunity to pretend that society is not fit for them. Knowledge of the slums is at present a passport to society—so much the parlor philanthropists have achieved—and all they have to do is to prove that they know their subject. It is an odd qualification to have pitched on; but gentlemen and ladies are always credulous, especially if you tell them that they are not doing their duty.
    Katharine Fullerton Gerould (1879–1944)
