People Quotes

It takes a highly intellectual individual to enjoy leisure. . . . Most of us had better count on working. What a man really wants is creative challenge with sufficient skills to bring him within the reach of success so that he may have the expanding joy of achievement. . . . Few people overwork; plenty overeat, overworry, overdrink. . . . Few realize real joy and happiness of conquest. The basis of mental health for the average adult is more work, provided the work is not mere drudgery

Dr. Fay B. Nash

Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

Oscar Wilde

We are no longer fighting a great enemy, we are asserting a great principle: that the talents and dreams of average people their warm human hopes and loves should be rewarded by freedom and protected by peace. We are defending the nobility of normal lives, lived in obedience to God and conscience, not to government.

George Walker Bush

The historian, with a vast chronological account of a people, parallels it with a skip trail which stops only at the salient items, and can follow at any time contemporary trails which lead him all over civilization at a particular epoch. There is a new profession of trail blazers, those who find delight in the task of establishing useful trails through the enormous mass of the common record. The inheritance from the master becomes, not only his additions to the world's record, but for his disciples the entire scaffolding by which they were erected.

Vannevar Bush

Oppressed people cannot remain oppressed forever.

Martin Luther King Jr

Shipping is a terrible thing to do to vegetables. They probably get jet-lagged, just like people

Elizabeth Berry

The religions whose theology is least preoccupied with events in time and most concerned with eternity, have been consistently less violent and more humane in political practice. Unlike early Judaism, Christianity and Mohammedanism (all obsessed with time) Hinduism and Buddhism have never been persecuting faiths,have preached almost no holy wars and have refrained from that proselytizing religious imperialism which has gone hand in hand with political and economic oppression of colored people.

Aldous Huxley

I doubt whether any angel would find me very entertaining. As for myself, if ever I do entertain one it will have to be unawares. When people entertain others without an introduction they generally turn out more like devils than angels.

Samuel Butler

How horrible, fantastic, incredible it is that we should be digging trenches and trying on gas-masks here because of a quarrel in a far away country between people of whom we know nothing. It seems still more impossible that a quarrel which has already been settled in principle should be the subject of war.

Arthur Neville Chamberlain

It's a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people don't want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

Pelham Grenville Wodehouse

There's some people who do things so bad it tears the fabric of the world, and then there's some people so sweet and good that they can feel it when the world gets torn. They see things, they know things, only they're so good and pure that they don't understand what it is that they're seeing.

Orson Scott Card

People often overestimate what they can reasonably achieve in a year. But they vastly underestimate what they can achieve in 5 years.

Steve Pavlina

Art is a concrete and personal and rather childish thing after all no matter what people do to graft it into science and make it sociological and psychological; it is no good at all unless it is let alone to be itself a game of make-believe, or re-production, very exciting and delightful to people who have an ear for it or an eye for it.

Willa Sibert Cather

The eyes of other people are the eyes that ruin us.

Benjamin Franklin

Never get angry. Never make a threat. Reason with people.
