I spent my boyhood behind the barbed wire fences of American internment camps and that part of my life is something that I wanted to share with more people.
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.
Men and women in my lifetime have died fighting for the right to vote: people like James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, who were murdered while registering black voters in Mississippi in 1964, and Viola Liuzzo, who was murdered by the Ku Klux Klan in 1965 during the Selma march for voting rights.
Thin people are beautiful, but fat people are adorable.
The grass is always greener on the other side. We are busy applying fairness creams while people in the West go bare-bodied on the beach to get a tan. Indian girls have ruled the roost when it comes to beauty pageants. I flaunt my complexion, and I am proud to be noticed as an Indian wherever I go.
Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be attained.
It's particularly hard to take being stabbed in the back close to home. There's always a feeling of betrayal when people of your own group oppose you.
One of the reasons people hate politics is that truth is rarely a politician's objective. Election and power are.
People who are prone to anxiety are nearly always people-pleasers who fear conflict and negative feelings like anger. When you feel upset, you sweep your problems under the rug because you don't want to upset anyone. You do this so quickly and automatically that you're not even aware you're doing it.
David D. Burns
People discuss my art and pretend to understand as if it were necessary to understand, when it's simply necessary to love.
When the best leader's work is done the people say, 'We did it ourselves.'
I'm happy being myself, which I've never been before. I always hid in other people, or tried to find myself through the characters, or live out their lives, but I didn't have those things in mine.
Sometimes you have to disconnect to stay connected. Remember the old days when you had eye contact during a conversation? When everyone wasn't looking down at a device in their hands? We've become so focused on that tiny screen that we forget the big picture, the people right in front of us.
Marketing is a contest for people's attention.
The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.
Good leadership consists of showing average people how to do the work of superior people.
John D. Rockefeller
Even with whatever people want to label me with, there are so many other sides to me.
You dear women, I say thanks to you. Thank you for being the kind of people you are and doing the things you do.
Gordon B. Hinckley
I can't wait to be that age and hanging out with a bunch of people hanging out all day playing golf and going to the beach, all my own age. We'd be laughing and having a good time and getting loopy on our prescription drugs. Driving golf carts around. I can't wait.
I used to believe that people are only born once, but now I feel I have been reborn, like I was given a new life. I see myself as a child, full of energy and hope.
Never trust anyone completely but God. Love people, but put your full trust only in God.
The best way a mentor can prepare another leader is to expose him or her to other great people.
John C. Maxwell
Dance is for everybody. I believe that the dance came from the people and that it should always be delivered back to the people.
Grief starts to become indulgent, and it doesn't serve anyone, and it's painful. But if you transform it into remembrance, then you're magnifying the person you lost and also giving something of that person to other people, so they can experience something of that person.
Life is short and the older you get, the more you feel it. Indeed, the shorter it is. People lose their capacity to walk, run, travel, think, and experience life. I realise how important it is to use the time I have.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
