Famous quotes containing the word people:

    What is Americanism? Every one has a different answer. Some people say it is never to submit to the dictation of a King. Others say Americanism is the pride of liberty and the defence of an insult to the flag with their gore. When some half-developed person tramples on that flag, we should be ready to pour out the blood of the nation, they say. But do we not sit in silence when that flag waves over living conditions which should be an insult to all patriotism?
    Anna Howard Shaw (1847–1919)

    Politically, Swift was one of those people who are driven into a sort of perverse Toryism by the follies of the progressive party of the moment.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    Of course you’re always at liberty to judge the critic. Judge people as critics, however, and you’ll condemn them all!
    Henry James (1843–1916)
