Million People

Famous quotes containing the words million people, million and/or people:

    A million people—manners free and superb—open
    voices—hospitality—the most courageous and friendly young men,
    City of hurried and sparkling waters! city of spires and masts!
    City nested in bays! my city!
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    The man who invented Eskimo Pie made a million dollars, so one is told, but E.E. Cummings, whose verse has been appearing off and on for three years now, and whose experiments should not be more appalling to those interested in poetry than the experiment of surrounding ice-cream with a layer of chocolate was to those interested in soda fountains, has hardly made a dent in the doughy minds of our so-called poetry lovers.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    To get it right, be born with luck or else make it. Never give up. Get the knack of getting people to help you and also pitch in yourself. A little money helps, but what really gets it right is to never—I repeat—never under any conditions face the facts.
    Ruth Gordon (1896–1985)
