Famous quotes containing the word people:

    It was a good thing to have a couple of thousand people all rigid and frozen together, in the palm of one’s hand.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    [When asked by the judge, after her first arrest, at age 15: “Do you expect to convert people to socialism by talking on Broadway?”:] Indeed I do.
    Elizabeth Gurley Flynn (1890–1964)

    The most durable thing in writing is style, and style is the most valuable investment a writer can make with his time. It pays off slowly, your agent will sneer at it, your publisher will misunderstand it, and it will take people you have never heard of to convince them by slow degrees that the writer who puts his individual mark on the way he writes will always pay off.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)
