|C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.|
| The character of the common people changes in a single day.|
| The will of the people is the best law.|
U. S. Grant.
| The people are the only sovereigns of any country.|
R. D. Owen.
| The vulgar and the many are fit only to be led or driven.|
| The second, sober thought of the people is seldom wrong, and always efficient.|
Martin Van Buren.
| By gaining the people, the kingdom is gained; by losing the people, the kingdom is lost.|
| No party should fear to go before the people for their decision.|
| Orators inflame the people, whose anger is really but a short fit of madness.|
| ||And what the people but a herd confusd,|
|A miscellaneous rabble, who extol|
|Things vulgar, and, well weighd, scarce worth the praise?|
|They praise, and they admire, they know not what,|
|And know not whom, but as one leads the other;|
|And what delight to be by such extolld,|
|To live upon their tongues, and be their talk,|
|Of whom to be dispraisd were no small praise?|
