Crowds

Great bodies of people are never responsible for what they do.

Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) British novelist and essayist.

If it has to choose who is to be crucified, the crowd will always save Barabbas.

Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) French author and filmmaker.

Towns are full of people, houses full of tenants, hotels full of guests, trains full of travelers, cafés full of customers, parks full of promenaders, consulting-rooms of famous doctors full of patients, theatres full of spectators, and beaches full of bathers. What previously was, in general, no problem, now begins to be an everyday one, namely, to find room.

José Ortega y Gasset (1883-1955) Spanish Essayist, and Philosopher.

The toughest part of getting to the top of the ladder, is getting through the crowd at the bottom.
