Feedback is a pleasant thing. I get a lot of letters from unexpected people in unexpected places.
Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.
Solitude would be ideal if you could pick the people to avoid.
Money is related to class only in the minds of people who have too much of the former, too little of the latter or none of either
Other lands have their vitality in a few, a class, but we have it in the bulk of our people.
When the government violates the people's rights, insurrection is, for the people and for each portion of the people, the most sacred of the rights and the most indispensible of duties.
Colleges are like old-age homes, except for the fact that more people die in colleges.
A college education shows a man how little other people know.
I believe that Gandhi was correct. Non-violent civil disobedience is the only way to bring about change that allows people to enjoy the change and not get killed in the process.
What is saved in the cinema when it achieves art is a spontaneous continuity with all mankind. It is not an art of the princes or the bourgeoisie. It is popular and vagrant. In the sky of the cinema people learn what they might have been and discover what belongs to them apart from their single lives.
Lots of people who complained about us receiving the MBE received theirs for heroism in the war --for killing people. We received ours for entertaining other people. I'd say we deserve ours more.
People blame their environment. There is only one person to blame -- and only one -- themselves.
I think people nowadays do tend to blame their parents for everything.
Censorship is a strange situation. There was times when people would burn books because they didn't like what people were doing.
Jewish people have been victims of anti-Semitism in many parts of the world, and in Europe they were the target of the Holocaust, the ultimate abomination. Yet, we cannot expect Palestinians to accept this as a reason why the wrongs done to them
Television is the first truly democratic culture - the first culture available to everybody and entirely governed by what the people want. The most terrifying thing is what people do want.
I am overwhelmed by the grace and persistence of my people.
A conflict begins and ends in the hearts and minds of people, not in the hilltops.
Morality is simply the attitude we adopt toward people whom we personally dislike.
When people get married because they think it`s a long-time love affair, they`ll be divorced very soon, because all love affairs end in disappointment. But marriage is a recognition of a
When people divorce, it’s always such a tragedy. At the same time, if people stay together it can be even worse.
Often dismissed or underestimated by political opponents, President Reagan had the most valuable weapon in the political arsenal: a bond with the people
I want for our country enough laws to restrain me from injuring others, so that these laws will also restrain others from injuring me. I want enough government, with enough constitutional safeguards, so that this necessary minimum of laws will be applied equitably to everybody, and will be binding on the rulers as well as those ruled. Beyond that I want neither laws nor government to be imposed on our people as a means or with the excuse of protecting us from catching cold, or of seeing that we raise the right kind of crops, or of forcing us to live in the right kind of houses or neighborhoods, or of compelling us to save money or to spend it, or of telling us when or whether we can pray. I do not want government or laws designed for any other form of welfarism or paternalism, based on the premise that government knows best and can run our lives better than we can run them ourselves.

Experts and the educated elite have replaced what worked with what sounded good. Society was far more civilized before they took over our schools, prisons, welfare programs, police departments and courts. It's high time we ran these people out of our lives and went back to common sense
If enough people think of a thing and work hard enough at it, I guess it's pretty nearly bound to happen, wind and weather permitting.
