Famous quotes containing the word people:

    Christ: I dislike him very much; still I can stand him. What I cannot stand is the wretched band of people whose profession is to hoodwink us about him.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    For you are a people holy to the LORD your God; the LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on earth to be his people, his treasured possession. It was not because you were more numerous than any other people that the LORD set his heart on you and chose you -for you were the fewest of all peoples.
    Bible: Hebrew, Deuteronomy 7:6,7.

    I just want to tell you all how happy I am to be back in the studio, making a picture again! You don’t know much I’ve missed all of you.... You see, this is my life. It always will be! There’s nothing else. Just us, and the cameras, and those wonderful people out there in the dark. All right, Mr. de Mille. I’m ready for my closeup.
    Billy Wilder (b. 1906)
