Famous quotes containing the word people:

    I said there was a society of men among us, bred up from their youth in the art of proving by words multiplied for the purpose, that white is black, and black is white, according as they are paid. To this society all the rest of the people are as slaves.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    In my practice I’ve seen how people have allowed their humanity to drain away. Only it happens slowly instead of all at once. I didn’t seem to mind.... All of us, a little bit. We harden our hearts. Grow callous. Only when we have to fight to stay human do we realize how precious it is to us, how dear.
    Daniel Mainwaring (1902–1977)

    After the earthquake, which had destroyed three-quarters of Lisbon, the country’s wise men had found no more efficacious means of preventing total ruin than to give the people a fine auto-da-fé.
    Voltaire [François Marie Arouet] (1694–1778)
