#128 Albert Einstein

The work on satisfactory formulation of technical patents was a true blessing for me. It compelled me to be many-sided in thought, and also offered important stimulation for thought about physics. Following a practical profession is a blessing for people of my type. Because the academic career puts a young person in a sort of compulsory situation to produce scientific papers in impressive quantity, a temptation to superficiality arises that only strong characters are able to resist. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about people
#148 Albert Einstein

In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognise, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what makes me really angry is that they quote me for support of such views. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about people
#155 Albert Einstein

The physicists say that I am a mathematician, and the mathematicians say that I am a physicist. I am a completely isolated man and though everybody knows me, there are very few people who really know me. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about people
#188 Albert Einstein

I do not believe in race as such. Race is a fraud. All modern people are the conglomeration of so many ethnic mixtures that no pure race remains. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about people
#228 Albert Einstein

My passion for social justice has often brought me into conflict with people, as did my aversion to any obligation and dependence I do not regard as absolutely necessary. I always have a high regard for the individual and have an insuperable distaste for violence and clubmanship. All these motives made me into a passionate pacifist and anti-militarist. I am against any nationalism, even in the guise of mere patriotism. Privileges based on position and property have always seemed to me unjust and pernicious, as did any exaggerated personality cult. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about people
#333 Albert Einstein

Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions that differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about people
#515 Martin Luther King, Jr.

Another way is to acquiesce and to give in, to resign yourself to the oppression. Some people do that. They discover the difficulties of the wilderness moving into the promised land, and they would rather go back to the despots of Egypt because it’s difficult to get in the promised land. And so they resign themselves to the fate of oppression; they somehow acquiesce to this thing. But that too isn’t the way because non-cooperation with evil is as much a moral obligation as is cooperation with good. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about people
#666 Martin Luther King, Jr.

at(23 June 1963). The speech is a direct predecessor to King's "I Have A Dream" (see section below), because two months before the March on Washington, King stood before a throng of 150,000 people at Cobo Hall in Detroit to expound upon making “the American Dream a reality”. King repeatedly exclaimed, “I have a dream this afternoon”. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about people
#845 Martin Luther King, Jr.

And the other thing is that it causes one to engage ultimately in activities that are merely used to get attention. Criminologists tell us that some people are driven to crime because of this drum major instinct. They don't feel that they are getting enough attention through the normal channels of social behavior, and so they turn to anti-social behavior in order to get attention, in order to feel important. And so they get that gun, and before they know it they robbed a bank in a quest for recognition, in a quest for importance. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about people
#851 Martin Luther King, Jr.

He was only thirty-three when the tide of public opinion turned against him. They called him a rabble-rouser. They called him a troublemaker. They said he was an agitator. He practiced civil disobedience; he broke injunctions. And so he was turned over to his enemies and went through the mockery of a trial. And theof it all is that his friends turned him over to them. One of his closest friends denied him. Another of his friends turned him over to his enemies. And while he was dying, the people who killed him gambled for his clothing, the only possession that he had in the world. When he was dead he was buried in a borrowed tomb, through the pity of a friend. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about people
#862 Martin Luther King, Jr.

We've got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. … And I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people will get to the promised land. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about people
#867 Martin Luther King, Jr.

We aren't engaged in any negative protest and in any negative arguments with anybody. We are saying that we are determined to be men. We are determined to be people. We are saying that we are God's children. And that we don't have to live like we are forced to live. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about people
#869 Martin Luther King, Jr.

When people get caught up with that which is right and they are willing to sacrifice for it, there is no stopping point short of victory. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about people
#872 Martin Luther King, Jr.

It's all right to talk about "long white robes over yonder," in all of its symbolism. But ultimately people want some suits and dresses and shoes to wear down here. It's all right to talk about "streets flowing with milk and honey," but God has commanded us to be concerned about the slums down here, and his children who can't eat three square meals a day. It's all right to talk about the new Jerusalem, but one day, God's preacher must talk about the New York, the new Atlanta, the new Philadelphia, the new Los Angeles, the new Memphis, Tennessee. This is what we have to do. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about people
#893 John Cage

“What I'm proposing, to myself and other people, is what I often call the tourist attitude - that you act as though you've never been there before. So that you're not supposed to know anything about it. If you really get down to brass tacks, we have never been anywhere before.” .

John Cage Quotes about people
#895 John Cage

I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm frightened of the old ones. .

John Cage Quotes about people
#900 Harry S. Truman

There are 14 or 15 million Americans who have the resources to have representatives in Washington to protect their interests, and that the interests of the great mass of the other people - the 150 or 160 million - is the responsibility of the president of the United States, and I propose to fulfill it. .

Harry S. Truman Quotes about people

Harry S. Truman Quotes about people
#909 Harry S. Truman

The Russians are like us, they look and act like us. They are fine people. They got along with our soldiers in Berlin very well. As far as I am concerned, they can have whatever they want just so they don't try to impose their system on others. .

Harry S. Truman Quotes about people
#941 Harry S. Truman

Student: Some people suggest that you are getting mellowed and less militant. Is that so?Truman: Not in the slightest degree. They are trying to make an elder statesmen of me, but they will never succeed. .

Harry S. Truman Quotes about people
#955 Harry S. Truman

I sit here all day trying to persuade people to do the things they ought to have sense enough to do without my persuading them ... that's all the powers of the President amount to. .

Harry S. Truman Quotes about people
#1121 Bertrand Russell

We all have a tendency to think that the world must conform to our prejudices. The opposite view involves some effort of thought, and most people would die sooner than think – in fact they do so. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about people
#1182 Bertrand Russell

I have always thought respectable people scoundrels, and I look anxiously at my face every morning for signs of my becoming a scoundrel. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about people
#1211 Bertrand Russell

"I don't want to! Why should I?" "Because more people will be happier if you do than if you don't." "So what? I don't care about other people." "You should." "But why?" "Because more people will be happier if you do than if you don't." .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about people
#1224 Bertrand Russell

Democracy is the process by which people choose the man who'll get the blame. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about people
#1329 Bertrand Russell

The people who are regarded as moral luminaries are those who forego ordinary pleasures themselves and find compensation in interfering with the pleasures of others. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about people
#1429 Bertrand Russell

The world at present is obsessed by the conflict of rival ideologies, and one of the apparent causes of conflict is the desire for the victory of our own ideology and the defeat of the other. I do not think that the fundamental motive here has much to do with ideologies. I think the ideologies are merely a way of grouping people, and that the passions involved are merely those which always arise between rival groups. Ideologies, in fact, are one of the methods by which herds are created, and the psychology is much the same however the herd may have been generated. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about people
#1521 Oscar Wilde

Hard work is simply the refuge of people who have nothing whatever to do. .

Oscar Wilde Quotes about people
#1545 Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde Quotes about people
#1549 Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde Quotes about people
#1554 Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde Quotes about people

Oscar Wilde Quotes about people
#1641 Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde Quotes about people
#1643 Oscar Wilde

Fashion is what one wears oneself. What is unfashionable is what other people wear. .

Oscar Wilde Quotes about people
#1654 Oscar Wilde

I don't at all like knowing what people say of me behind my back. It makes me far too conceited. .

Oscar Wilde Quotes about people
#1656 Oscar Wilde

Just as the worst slave-owners were those who were kind to their slaves, and so prevented the horror of the system being realised by those who suffered from it, and understood by those who contemplated it, so, in the present state of things in England, the people who do most harm are the people who try to do most good. .

Oscar Wilde Quotes about people
#1673 Oscar Wilde

The things people say of a man do not alter a man. He is what he is. Public opinion is of no value whatsoever. .

Oscar Wilde Quotes about people
#1712 Oscar Wilde

Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation. .

Oscar Wilde Quotes about people
#1813 Jean Paul Sartre

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about people
#1841 Jean Paul Sartre

Hell is other people .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about people
#1890 Jean Paul Sartre

You see, I divide men into three categories: those who have a lot of money, those who have none at all and those who have a little. The first want to keep what they have: their interest is to maintain order; the second want to take what they do not have: their interest is to destroy the existing order and to establish one which is profitable to them. They each are realist, people with whom one can agree. The third group want to overthrow the social order to take what they do not have, while still preserving it so that no one takes away what they have. Thus, they preserve in fact what they destroy in theory, or they destroy in fact what they seem to preserve. Those are the idealists. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about people
#1896 Jean Paul Sartre

There are two types of poor people, those who are poor together and those who are poor alone. The first are the true poor, the others are rich people out of luck. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about people
#2045 Ambrose Bierce

A popular author is one who writes what the people think. Genius invites them to think something else. .

Ambrose Bierce Quotes about people
#2515 Winston Churchill

Will the shutting out of foreign goods increase the total amount of wealth in this country? Can foreign nations grow rich at our expense by selling us goods under cost price? Can a people tax themselves into prosperity? Can a man stand in a bucket and lift himself up by the handle? .

Winston Churchill Quotes about people
#2539 Winston Churchill

The choice was clearly open: crush them with vain and unstinted force, or try to give them what they want. These were the only alternatives, and though each had ardent advocates, most people were unprepared for either. Here indeed was the Irish spectre – horrid and inexorcisable. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about people
#2604 Winston Churchill

I must point out ... that the British nation is unique in this respect. They are the only people who like to be told how bad things are, who like to be told the worst, and like to be told that they are very likely to get much worse in the future and must prepare themselves for further reverses. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about people
#2638 Winston Churchill

The Russians will sweep through your country and your people will be liquidated. You are on the verge of annihiliation. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about people

Winston Churchill Quotes about people
#2741 Napoleon I of France

What is a throne? — a bit of wood gilded and covered in velvet. I am the state— I alone am here the representative of the people. Even if I had done wrong you should not have reproached me in public — people wash their dirty linen at home. France has more need of me than I of France. .
